MiniBar London

minibar.gif You think about creating the next, flickr, or Web 2.0 start up? You think London lacks opportunities to meet up and discuss those ideas?

For those who don’t have time to attend a full BarCamp, some of us have come up with MiniBar, a chance to snaffle some free beer while discussing p2p, Creative Commons, web applications, social networking and general Web 2.0 mayhem & fandango.

It’s fun, it’s free and you don’t have to bring a sleeping bag. Come to Corbet Place for an early Friday evening get together the at Truman Brewery (off Brick Lane, next to Spitalfields Market and Liverpool Street Station). There’s a (normal sized) bar, a DJ, and some nice people to chat to. Who knows, you even might find out something you didn’t know. For the first one John Buckman of and will say a couple of words about music sharing, p2p philosophy and Creative Commons.

We will also be trialling our very Situated Social Tagging system! Think people, not URLs, and sticky-backed tags! More on the night…

The meetings will happen at the same place every month.

  1. [...] Since its party day for OpenBusiness and we are having our first MiniBar this seems an appropriate story: Henrik form the Free Beer crew in Copenhagen went to Belem in the north of Brazil to make a documentary about copyright and the sound system parties they have (which are part of a flourishing music business with no copyright).
