Drew has written a post about his hopes for TVSMC, and Neville gives a good background on Tuttle/SMC. There are a number of people out this way who regularly trek in to London Tuttle, so that gives a great start. It is wonderful to have something local to the Valley here, which will hopefully open up the opportunity for many more people to experience what happens when on-line and off-line merge.
As Matt Brady says, “[Reading] and its environs is chock-full of digital talent”, so it is time to show your stuff, if you are in the area sign up on the Thames Valley SMC wiki. Any problems signing up, catch me on twitter or drop me an email and I’ll sort you out. I’ve built three RSS feeds into the site so far:
- RSS feed of the Wiki pages, to keep up with changes/sign ups.
- RSS feed for TVSMC blog (first post pending!).
- RSS feed from the calendar to keep track of dates.
The first gathering is at 10AM on Friday 13th of March. I’ll be there in spirit (since I’ll be in the thick of South by South West Interactive), but there is a healthy crowd going along!
