Kiteman, out in public... Answered


Dorkbot Anglia is a regular evening of talks and conversations with "people doing strange things with electricity" in the East Anglian area. We are delighted to announce our seventh meeting as the guests of the CSV Media Clubhouse on Thursday 24th November. Entry is free.

Thursday 24th November 2011, 7:30-10pm
CSV Media Clubhouse, 120 Princes Street, Ipswich, Suffolk, IP1 1RS


(About five or ten minute's walk from Ipswich railway station)

This time, there's a special guest ...

Edit:

It was a grand night, lots of folk went home with a determination to try the site, plus a new t-shirt.

Even better, Tim Hunkin was in the audience!

Afterwards, we speakers and the organisers adjourned to a pub called St Jude's for some excellent beer and, frankly, a rather random conversation.  Some interesting ideas about mixing the concepts of 3d printer and laser-cutter, though...

"Anglia" always reminds me of this, and nothing more.

"OMG" (to borrow a phrase from those far, far younger than myself). I had no idea that Ford Prefect actually meant something.

What, you expected classic British comedy to be free of appalling puns?

Couldn't you hold these things a little closer to London?

I wish I could come, but it's too far.

Check out DorkbotLondon, but be careful - their page used to be a badly-maintained wiki, and it was riddled with malware.  I don't know what state it's in now, but I'm signed up to their announce list, which is how I got the message above.

There's another branch of Dorkbot in London. I believe they meet in pubs a lot...
