Well, my stint as compère at Silicon Beach is over.
The Sumo Bar didn’t have the most condusive atmosphere for public speaking - we didn’t have a PA and there was music thumping from upstairs.
Still, the speakers rose to the challenge. Dave Phelan gave an excellent and inspiring talk about life, the universe and WiFi.
After that, the Loose Connection people talked about what they’re doing and we had a bit of a discussion.
The noise from upstairs was extremely distracting, though, so I suggested we check out this wireless internet access in the flesh, so to speak.
So we had a mass exodus to The Black Lion pub and that’s where I am now, blogging wirelessly at a table full of geeks and their laptops.
The perfect way to end an inspiring evening.
Dave’s slides are online now - recommended reading.
