This evening the Tech Valley Social Club held it’s first tweetup at the Dublin Crossing Pub in Surrey. The Meet n Tweet saw about 60 people gather to talk about social media, technology, Twitter, and business practices. It was fantastic to be a part of it all and to have a chance to speak for the group.

Rachael was taking video all evening and will have something up in the near future on her blog.

I also picked up Raul and brought him out to the meetup with me – it was nice to have him to chat with in the car while it took us two hours to get through rush hour traffic.

    Nice photos of the night! Thanks for trekking out this side of the bridge to chat with some techs and creatives.

  6. It was a great event… thanks so much for facing bridge traffic to share with us!

    I didn’t get a chance to connect in person with you, but I hope to tweet with you. I’m @susancarraretto and also I tweet with my twin sister Janice on a shared account @5minutesformom. My @susancarraretto is a rather new account that I’m just starting to build up.

    My sister Janice and I have been very active in the mom blogging world since 2006, but we haven’t participated in much locally yet… so last night was a great step towards meeting local peeps.

    Thanks again and talk more soon!
    Susan
