I like this…
You thinking about creating the next Last.fm, flickr, or Web 2.0 start up? You think [[Insert your town/city]] lacks opportunities to meet up and discuss those ideas?
For those who don’t have time to attend a full BarCamp, some of us have come up with MiniBar, a chance to snaffle some free beer while discussing p2p, Creative Commons, web applications, social networking and general Web 2.0 mayhem & fandango.
It’s fun, it’s free and you don’t have to bring a sleeping bag.
I was chatting with James Corbett last week about face-to-face meetings. James felt BarCampIreland was too formal (in which case we screwed up – BarCamp is meant to be anything but formal ;-) ). James suggested smaller more frequent meetups so minibar should be right up his street.
Let a thousand minibars bloom.
update: James is getting the ball rolling with a minibar in Limerick this friday. Let us know how it goes James.
