Re: Drinks evening (with founder of The Local)

Great PR and a great idea.....thanks for facing the music and dancing.

I won't attend though (because its only an online place to talk nonsense now and again and isn't high on my priority list vs other things to do on a Wednesday night )

Re: Drinks evening (with founder of The Local)

joking aside, is it a good opportunity to express concerns about the T&C, Moderation , etc.

Or is it all going to be shrugged off with "chill it's just drinks" ??

I don't know. Face to face can be more revealing... Especially if everyone gets drunk

Go ahead, express your doubts and concerns about the T&Cs, moderation etc. In the right part of EF, where everyone can see and respond to your comments.

Indeed.

It's just a shame our friends from Geneva, Neuchatel, Lausanne, Lugano, Sion, Chur and Fribourg can't attend, isn't it?

and while it's early days yet it looks like they only need reserve a couple of bar stools so far.

Re: Drinks evening (with founder of The Local)

@jrspet - I'd be happy to meet for a coffee/beer at a time that would suit you.

@mirfield - yes, maybe a *touch* overdue but hopefully one or two people will find it worthwhile.

@ouchboy - what time would you be able to make it? I would hope it's a good opportunity to talk about any concerns - no shrugging on my part.

@grynch - can't guarantee there will be minutes and I don't think I'll be able to get to GE this time - but can definitely fix another trip soon

@Dougal's Breakfast - agree, but it seemed sensible to do it in Zurich and Basel. If people do want to meet for a chat I'll try and get to as many places as possible - as mentioned above, if I can't do it on this trip then on another one soon. Where are you based?

Re: Drinks evening (with founder of The Local)

You should do it via a video conference. All you need is a webcam (sometimes, the world's best webcam is offered for sale on this very forum), a large conference table and a white cat to stroke as you speak.

paul, thanks for taking the time(both here and for the drinks). Since i didn't know your schedule, I didn't want to commit. I'm always late to these events.
i just wanted to make clear what people are looking into (just so you know I don't have an issue with the T&C text).

If people are still there 9 or so (doubtful) I'll drop by. Otherwise, don't move your schedule just for me.

P.S: I don't own brass knuckles, so don't worry.
