On the way to the venue I could just see the sea a couple of blocks down from the road I turned into. I don’t think I’ve actually seen the sea (other than from an airplane) for a couple of years (eeek).
So, I’m sat in a dis-used church waiting for the event to begin. There’s a nice group of Web2.0’y people, say 50-60, and there’s free WiFi. What more could a geek want?
