A packed day

I nearly entitled this post "packing it in" but that may have cuase some confusion.
I am sure between us we will write some posts on eightbar.com but yesterday was insanely busy.
Roo got invited to a social media conference in London and I tagged along with him as we both needed to be in London that day anyway.
He did a superb job on stage, and rather embarrisingly name checked me duting his pitch. I was also busy contwitting or whatever twittering when at a conference needs to be called.
We also then rand an ad hoc session for about 40 people around metaverse, both Second Life and our internal IQ metaverse, the how, where, what etc.
Then it was off to see Mindcandy, the makers of perplexcity. Even though the ARG is on ice the cards are still going to be going. This ended up being a very wide conversation with a great bunch of people.
Finally the evening was spent at Tim Guests book launch at Rivers Run Red. Tim has written his book Second Live (check you local amazon for this).
This all seemed a little bit rock and roll. The fact we are in the book, as part of the corporate chapter, and eightbar made it even more interesting.
There was even some joking, or not, about some deal and some film rights. I have no idea if that was a wind up :-) It added to the memorable nature of the event.
Then back on the train, much discussion of history, future etc then I got back home to do baby Sam's midnight feed and then into bed.
So 6am to midnight yesterday was varied

Ian, it was great to meet you at the social media forum on Wednesday, and thanks for an interesting discussion.

I've written up some of the virtual worlds 'open space' discussion as a blog post here - please feel free to weigh in and correct anything I might have misheard or misunderstood!
