Re: [WSG] London Meetup for people interested in an informal discussion around web standards

2007-10-12 Thread Joseph Ortenzi

Thanks Nick, etc.

So sounds like the Web Standards London is allied (loosely!) with Web  
Standards group (webstandardsgroup.org),


Web Standards London likes  structured lectures followed by beer

Pub Standards is developers talking about beer, with some Standards talk

Web Standards Meetup London talks about web standards with beer and  
wine and cola or coffee in attendance.


Sounds like plenty of room for everyone here. Anyone mind if I  
progress with gettingt attention for the group I just started (Web  
Standards Meetup London)?

If you are looking for speakers and presentations then pub  
standards is not for you - it is really all about the beer and just  
a coincidence that everyone who attends are web devs ;

Great to see gatherings of like-minded folk all over the place. As a
side note, have you heard about Pubstandards UK?

http://www.pubstandards.co.uk/

Website has kind of died off, but they have a mailing list that has
updates on meetings (Generally something on every week or so from what
I hear, with Sub-standards). Some very interesting webby people get
involved...

For Australian Melbournites, there is also Pubstandards:

I hope this isn't an infringement of the mailing list. Apologies  
if I got it
wrong. Sorry for the short notice but there has been a bit of an  
internal

debate on the merits of letting you all know about this.

For those of you who are not aware, there is a site called Meetup  
dot com
that allows people to create a regular group meeting among people  
who wish
to meet and discuss a topic. anything from books, television  
programs,
games, etc. whatever your interests it helps you find others then  
start a
group. For the past year or so there have been over 100 people who  
expressed
an interest in joining a Web Standards Meetup Group and I managed  
to get a

few dozen interested in joining these past weeks.

There will be an inagural meeting of the Web Standards London  
Meetup Group
TONIGHT for anyone interested in discussing issues around  
implementing Web

Standards.
This is in no way connected to WASP or Web Standards Group dot org  
and arose

from my experiences in various meetups around London.

The aim of this meetup is to have informal discussions or very short
presentations (15 mins max) in a pub or coffee-house and to open  
the floor
to informal discussions, support, sharing and commiserate. If  
possible I
would very much like to help promote the WSG London branch through  
this.
They don't seem to be posting their events on the  
webstandardsgroup.org site
since July 2006, even though you get to join the London branch by  
joining

WSG.org.

Please visit: http://webstandards.meetup.com/130/ if you
are interested in joining this group, which, as some have  
mentioned in the

discussion, is not designed to supplant but instead to compliment the
existing WSG.org. London group.
