I’m going to be in London working all next week and the first bit of the week after. So I’m just hanging out on Saturday and Sunday, Nov. 3 and 4. Anybody around? Drink?
Hi Jeff, be a great pleasure to meet up for a drink over that weekend. I’m head of sales and digital strategist for Ridley Scott’s film and commercial (content) production company RSA Films.

Hi, I’m Jon Marshall III, Vice President, CEO and Digital Content Overlord of a major multinational media conglomerate. We can go for some sushi in Soho, do a couple of lines, and then chase some skirt. You up for that? Don’t mention Rupert Murdoch though.
What about the Groucho Club???
I’m Jens Lapinski, CEO & Co-founder of a London based start-up in the Internet Search space. For this Saturday, I suggest you have a look here (as reported by Le Cool Magazine):
Festival Diwali at Trafalgar Square
Trafalgar Square has been a bit of a Bombay Mix of late with all sorts of events celebrating Indian culture. The Hindu festival, Diwali is in the spotlight today and thereâ€™s plenty at this free event to light your fire. This ancient festival of light is a celebration of good over all that is dark and evil. Tradition calls for the lighting of â€˜diyasâ€™ or earthen lamps so Trafalgar Square will be a hive of activity, not unlike the cities of India where Diwali sees whole cities transformed into cathedrals of light. It should be a pretty spectacle with floating candles in the fountains and lights everywhere. And as with all festivals, expect to find song and dance. But even with all that, allow me to shed some light on why this will definitely be worth your while â€“ the food! /
Kind regards, Jens
Drop me an e-mail if you want to grab a pie and a pint. Hope to be in town for Festival Diwali on Saturday. Great to meet and chat.

I’ve read – and enjoyed – your blog pretty much since it started.
I’m an IT man and life long Guardian reader so I’m a consumer from your perspective – but as an amateur I enjoy watching the media fumble towards the new opportunities out there.
Very happy to meet up for a drink if you have time.
Pleased you mentioned a bonfire. There’s a nice one in Hammersmith on Sat night where, if you’re interested, you could watch my local taxes quite literally go up in smoke.
I guess I am a bit too late with saying hi and welcome to London, due to some inactivity on your blog, which I have been following for some time, till about a few months ago.
Good to read your back blogging.
If your still around this week, let me know.
I cant say I sport the same VC backup as the commentators above, yet I been in the ‘new media’ business for some 10 years, germany, uk, netherlands, etc. Am currently residing in the Science Museum in London.
