Lynne is a hoot – me n’ Vashti chatted to her for hours one day in Kings Cross. Sara is my favourite fashion blogger – see the right hand panel for real life blog-friends. I wrote about My Cybertwin ages ago, but don’t know Liesl personally. Danielle I met a few weeks ago at a venture capitalist mentoring evening. She builds and flips websites – GoShout seems to be a social conscience petition site with premium SMS voting capabilities. I’ve never met Sam from Sam in the City. oops it’s now Ask Sam. Funny I haven’t used the title online communities strategist for two years now – it’s an old world term, social networks is the new in word for what I do – but it bobs up every so often. 😛 Download PDF.

Two days before is a sort of meet-up, Chrissy drinks and nibbles for Wild Wicked Wanton Women of Web 2.0 at The Arthouse Hotel. This was meant to happen on October 19th but as I spent the first two weeks of October back and forward to hospital, it taught me I need willing slaves. Err volunteers. And no, no great dramas, not dying or anything. Simply alternately boring and uncomfortable. Nothing a few drinks won’t help. 🙂 I don’t care either way if the blokes show up. It’s just a drinks and vague attempt at organising a date, venue, equipment and mailing list for the “practice presentations” run through group, with an emphasis on meeting each other in person in some cases for the first time.
Just to be clear, WWWWomen is for Web 2.0 women to do a run through on presenting their Web 2.0 projects, ideas, courses, and whatnots. If you are looking for other organisations that support women in I.T. or in business, also look at F.I.T.T or ABN. BTW look at this:
That’s just the PEAK BODIES. o.O Shall I join them all? I’m a bit of a ‘joiner’. heh.
