Last night’s Geek Dinner was its usual successful self : a plethora of web 2.0 freaks (and I use the term affectionately) gathered around one very long table at Café Mélies chatting about this and that and iPhones and Facebook. There’s that F word again.
Our guest of honour was CBC’s favourite geek son and blogger, Tod-with-one-d Maffin and our charming host was, as usual, Mitch Joel. Between the two of them and their various speaking gigs, I think they have the globe covered. We should probably make the next Geek Dinner a fundraiser to cover their carbon emissions.
Had great conversations with :
Maki Papadopoulos – former Greek national team water-polo athlete
Marko Kulik – photographer, pet expert and improvised-taxi-driver extraordinaire
Joe Thornley – all the way from across the border (the Ontario border) for the occasion
Robert Mendelson – who, at last report, was still trying to unload his Genesis tickets.
