Ribs Susiaho has offered up the Vircomm2012 Awards.  I have to agree on the quote of the day… I’m trying to remember to ‘smile from the wrists down’ every day (though those pesky fingertips sometimes have a mind of their own…)

I’ve said it several times but I think it needs said again – a big thank you to Rebecca Newton &  Oxana Morozowska for pulling together the conference!   A big thank you also to the speakers, session moderators,  volunteers & sponsors (Tempero, Crisp Thinking,, eModeration )

Do you have photos or have you also blogged about it?  Tell us in the comments below.

See you at Vircomm13!

So… if you want to met other e-mint-ers or talk community, head to Shoreditch Thursday night at 6p. We’re be at the Old Blue Last pub – details:

e-mint Social – Oct 7 – Bristol UK

Those of you in Bristol or the environs, please join us for a drink or two and possibly a pizza in Bristol this Thursday for the e-mint South West meetup (otherwise known as #emintup).

Yes, that’s right. We’re venturing out of London!

From 19:30 onwards we’ll be at Llandoger Trow on King St.

Londoners – e-mint drinks – June 17

Come join us for drink on June 17th.

This e-mint London ‘mintup’ will be just a nice friendly social evening. One of our members has recommended a quiet little pub just off Oxford Street. No football or loud music! If we get there early and there are enough of us, we can monopolise the upstairs room. The pub does normal pub food too.

RSVP please (the event is free, buy your own drinks but we’d like to have an idea of numbers)
