This week sees the sixth quarterly Milton Keynes Geek Night (MKGN). I’ve attended every one so far and always blogged about them – except the last one. The simple fact is, I’ve been too busy – but I’m also just a little bit obsessive about these things and wanted to write something before it’s too late…
The last event was fantastic as ever but I’ve lost my notes. I know it sounds a bit like “the dog ate my homework” but I think iA Writer has put them somewhere strange… not on Dropbox (where I expected) but in iCloud, I think – except I can’t find any documents in iCloud (I’m sure I have to use an iDevice of some sort and it will all be fine…). I really should standardise on using one app for this – not the current combination of OneNote/Evernote/iA Writer, depending on the device I’m using…
Anyway, you can catch the audio from the last MK Geek Night on SoundCloud including:
- Sarah Parmenter (@Sazzy) on designing for the responsive web.
- Westley Knight (@Meteoracle) on life behind the curve.
- Michael Fox (@IdleMichael) on how boardgames can make you awesome.
- Ben Ward (@CrouchingBadger) on setting whitespace spectrum free.
- Andrew Spooner (@AndSpo) on why mobile audio sucks.
MK Geek Night number 5 was David Hughes’ (@DavidHughes) last night as co-host and organiser but Richard Wiggins (@RichardWiggins) continues to organise these fantastic evenings. You can find out more on the MK Geek Night website or on Twitter (@MKGeekNight) – but you’ll have to be quick. Tickets “sold” out for this free event in under an hour this time around!
