Glenn delivered an excellent presentation on microformats last night. I've used them a couple of times before, but Glenn covered areas I hadn't come across, and got me all excited about them again. Glenn also covered using URLs as APIs, which was really inspiring.


Although Joh kindly says that I organised the event single-handedly, I actually had some help this time, from Joh, who found and collected a PA system. Although Glenn (quite understandably) didn't like having a hand-held mic, it really did help the people at the back, so thanks Joh!

Numbers were down on last time - quite a few people who signed up didn't turn up, which must be annoying for the people who couldn't sign up that would have been there otherwise. Maybe I should over-book to allow for this next time, airline-styley.

As for the next one, the venue is unavailable in May, so it will probably be June.
