Well, the mesh meetup is over, and it was a great party — lots of good food (thanks to our hosts at the Irish Embassy) and good conversation with the 100 or so people who came. It’s a good thing the Embassy had a little more space they could give us, because we were almost crowding the Bay Street types out at one point!
Thanks to everyone who showed up, and that includes the usual suspects — like Peter Dawson of ThoughtFlickr, Leila Boujnane of Idee Inc., Jim Courtney of Skype Journal, Michael O’Connor Clarke and Joe Thornley of Thornley Fallis, poli-blogger Andrew Coyne, the irrepressible Sacha Chua and too many others to name — and the new arrivals, including blogging star Tony Hung (sorry, that’s Dr. Tony Hung) of Deep Jive Interests, Scott Brooks of ConceptShare (who not only came early but brought his laptop), Maggie Fox of Social Media Group, Martin Cleaver from Helix Commerce and Darren Rowse of ProBlogger and b5media. Sheila Remtulla also came, and was glad that there were some other people who weren’t twenty-somethings 🙂
I know I’m missing a lot of people (only about 90 or so), so thanks again to everyone who came — and especially to Leesa Barnes, podcaster extraordinaire, who brought her gear and did some short interviews with people during the event, which we hope to have available soon. And anyone who was taking pictures (yes, I’m talking to you Leila and Sacha) if you could upload them to Flickr with the tag mesh07, that would be great.
