27 Dinner - a non-geeky success...

Just returned from a highly successful 27 Dinner - basically a mini-conference for SA's social media and blogging elite. Very nice to see such a large turnout for what promises to be the wave of SA web/media talent. Also encouraging to see representation from the Sunday Times and Biz-Community (who so nicely supported us in our Standard Bank article...).

Congrats to Mike Stopforth and Dave Duarte for the organisation - let's see more of this stuff soon.

Cowboys will cover the coverage. Symptomatic of SA bloggers stealing each other's traffic - but that's a whole different post. Hopefully one of the "big ideas" to come out of these type of conferences is a way to aggregate and conglomerate SA's content kingpins. Perhaps more on this later.
