So...anyone who reads this blog, has an even passing interest in media/strategy/tech and works in/ ever passes through London should really pop along to Umair Haque's "weekly get-together for investors, entrepreneurs, analysts, and people interested in next big things", now called Next Wednesdays (formerly "Innovation Wednesdays"). This week I'm told it will be held on Thursday 7th December at Coco Momo and (barring unforeseen disasters) I'll definitely be going along.
You can see a review of the sort of things I get out of these events here.
You can see the Next Wednesdays website (designed by Paul Pod of Tioti and Zopa fame) here.
And - because I fully believe Umair's theory that a lot of value is created online by reducing search costs for users - here's a photo of Umair so you won't have to wander round the pub asking everyone whether they're him.
