Conversation about Orlando Tech Association

Mon, 04/07/2008 - 15:17 -- rprice

...is happening right now over on Robert Dempsey's blog - he gave some highlights from the weekend at BarCamp and some of the many events and discussions around the idea of forming a technology association in Central/all of Florida.

I obviously had something to say, and I think this conversation is headed in a healthy direction. If you want to get involved, please check out Robert's blog and the subsequent comments.

Here are my words:

Had a great talk of about 35 minutes. I will link to folks' blogs and stuff in a few minutes, but I just realised I hadn't posted this yet. Flash player coming soon too.

Social Media Café London

Tue, 02/19/2008 - 07:12 -- rprice

My last Friday in London was the cause for Likemind London and (directly across the street, 5 minutes after) Social Media Café. I'm pretty sure the idea is to eventually own a physical piece of "IRL" space - this goes beyond coworking - London has several coworking spaces already. We're talking a place for social media nerds or pros, however they choose to label themselves, to get together and talk. Now taking place every Friday Morning near London's glitzy West End, behind the theatre where you can see "Spamalot".

Interesting Brits and Aussies (and Floridians, Michiganders)

I've certainly noticed the work of Russell Davies before, but somehow I thought he just blogged about food, because he's written a book about 50 great cafés around the UK called Egg, Bacon, Chips & Beans with an accompanying café blog, as well as one called a good place for a cup of tea and a think.

Orlando Geeks + Charity = My Suggestion

Thu, 01/31/2008 - 11:01 -- rprice

At BarCamp in September there was a food drive, and I think for what it was the project was considered a success. I like the idea, and I would gladly give food to local needy families.

Another way our event could have an impact on the world is by participating in the One Laptop Per Child Project. $200 is a lot of money for one geek to give on her own, but if a group of 200-500 geeks donated $10+ each, we could buy 10 to 25 laptops.

Simply Give
