Reminiscing on meetups
« on: May 11, 2011, 07:02:50 PM »
Welcome Guys.

It would be an fun roll call to see who was an the various function over the years.  An old Maids forum, and if you were there... post :)

My first outing was Nottingham... a couple at the Duke of York, got to Boston, Florida. Stopped going abroad when WMW got too big imho.
I cannot network 2000 people.


My first public apperance was in Irvine and I went to WMW in Boston, Florida, and the first couple in Vegas. I also have been to Affiliate Summit about 8 or 9 times and a couple other smaller shows.

Started in 2002, Pubcon in Cittie of York, London.

Been to all UK meets since except Leona's wedding. Edinburgh & Stansted plus some private meetings were highlights.

Looking forward to Bristol - not the web talk, the food ;-)

We REALLY should do Lisbon again - I thought the venue was perfect for that size of meeting - the late night poolside meals and drinking sessions were great.

wmw London 2002-4
webmastersinthesun San Diego once and Marbella twice, with the Tour of 888 in Gib by Assif, to show me all the data, as it was my old world......scary after years of looking after Investment bank data centres to see 888 running everything on something so crap:):)

Since 2006 have really hidden away except some of the small events

Now hiding more and more

London pubcons

Discrete meetups from 2002. Nottingham, Oxford etc

Stanstead and Copenhagen were brilliant, with Edinburgh being great too.

Missed Lisbon :-(

WITS in San Diego and then Spain was good.

Ahhh I remember the Thistle, drinking too much and having a good one. Great times with some fantastic people.
