Post Sydney Tweetup 2.0

It's taken me a while to get around to uploading my photos from the Sydney tweetup (STUB) back on the 27 Sept; sorry, I've been pretty busy since then. Here they are at last, funny captions are encouraged. If you have any more photos you'd like to show, please leave a link to them in the comments. Check out this video shot at the event too. Nick Hodge was handling the camera.

It was really good to see that a few more women came along this time. We also had some people from out of town, as the tweetup purposely coincided with a couple of other tech events going on in Sydney that week. It was great to see a few people there who had only just started twittering.

A big thanks goes out to those who helped organise the evening, and to all those who came along. It was a fun night. Thanks to Greg Dwyer and Markus Hafner (aka eskimo_sparky) from Happener Recruitment, and to Nick Hodge from Microsoft for their continued support of the event. My thanks also goes out to co-organiser Ajay Ranipeta (aka funkycoda). He has a lot of enthusiasm for encouraging and organising these kinds of events.

Microsoft supplied the food and a couple of copies of Vista as prizes for the best tweets of the night. Happener supplied the delicious beverages 2.0, and Twitter (the company) supplied a few "wearing my twitter shirt" t-shirts to give away as well. Thanks to Jack Dorsey from Twitter for coming through with the goods there.

Well, it wouldn't have happened without your support John, and a praise to you too :)

It was definitely loads of fun and hopefully we can get more new people in.

Drat, you got me in the background of the photo. Now there's somewhat-incontrovertible proof that I was there.

Photos never lie; I only Tweet the Truth...in 140 chars or less.

Hahaa, the camera sees all.

Big-ups to both you and Ajay for organising again - thanks John :) You're a key pillar of the twitter community in Sydney and Happener are very pleased to continue our involvement with STUB as a sponsor.

Good to see that Tweetups are alive and well Down Under, too! As a Yank who spent two years living in Brisbane earlier this decade, I've tried to keep a watch on how social media is evolving in Australia.

Now when is Sydney going to organize a PodCamp? :)
