Interesting event: Political Innovation

There is an event coming up that will interest a lot of Scottish political bloggers. Political Innovation is taking place on 13 November at the University of Edinburgh’s Informatics Forum. The Political Innovation project is a series of free-to-attend practical events at which people with ideas on political innovations can meet up with technical experts, […]

Another successful bloggers’ meetup

As you have no doubt seen if you are a regular reader, there was a meetup of bloggers on Thursday. What a good evening it was too — plenty of friendly chit-chat and drinks. So thanks to those who came and made it such a great evening: Stephen Jeff Sara Malc Andrew Jess the Dog […]

Final meetup plans

Apologies for the lack of proper material here. It’s all been meetup chat for the past couple of weeks, for which I apologise. Hopefully normal service will soon resume (whatever “normal service” is round here). I need to tie up a few of the loose ends which were present in the last update about the […]

Meetup information — date settled

The votes are in, and 27 August won by one vote! (I know it looks like it won by two votes, but one person had to change their plan after they’d already voted.) I would actually have preferred the 25th and I was sorely tempted to ignore the vote, but we wouldn’t want another Scottish […]

Yesterday’s bloggers’ meetup

Thanks to Malc for organising yesterday’s bloggers’ meetup. I really enjoyed it — it was good seeing some bloggers again, and meeting some others for the first time. The most impressive part of the night though was when every blogger’s favourite columnist, Iain Macwhirter, turned up. In the wake of all the criticism he got […]

Bloggy meetup in Edinburgh!

Just in case any readers here haven’t seen it, Jeff at SNP Tactical Voting has organised a little get-together for bloggers — and it’s happening tomorrow. Despite the fact that I have been blogging for a slightly worrying six years, I have never met up with any other bloggers (except for those I knew anyway […]
