Seesmic Dinner

How frustrating.  I was rather hoping that Loic and VinVin were arseholes so that I could continue ranting about Seesmic indefinitely.  However, after dinner tonight it turns out they’re bloody marvellous and I feel a bit bad about being so cutting in my review of Seesmic.  Don’t get me wrong; I stand by my points on the functionality and lack of response to feedback, however their passion and enthusiasm for their product and community is rather catchy – so they’ve won a bunch of brownie points from me.

Dinner was held at the Coach & Horses on Greek Street, Soho, and was not bad food for a pub.

Watching everyone Seesmic-ing (Seesmicking? Seesmiccing?) pretty much constantly throughout the evening was amusing, if rather nerdy – it was over dinner afterall…  There were a host of the usual Seesmic users there, as well as some high profile web types like Suw Charman, Hugh McLeod, et al.

After dinner, Hugh did a rather long speech, about, well all sorts really.  At one point I thought he was going to end with the American national anthem.  He didn’t, but I’m pretty sure that’s only because someone else had started to do a speech by now.  That bit was slightly random, and quite scary in my sober state of being 🙂

So, all in all a very pleasant evening with some charming people, and a big thanks to Loic for welcoming me (and even sitting next to me during dinner, he must be a glutton for punishment) and Dean and Sizemore for the invite.

Look, aren’t we cute?
