Inspired a great deal by Lloyd Davis and what he started in London with the Social Media Cafe aka the Tuttle Club, TVSMC (or will it become known as the â€˜Reading Tuttleâ€™?) is a venue/idea/connector for anyone who simply wants to meet up at a convenient and pleasant location in the heart of the Thames Valley.
Quite a few people have been in parallel thinking about setting up something in Reading. When I tweeted some thoughts at the weekend, I discovered that Drew Benvie and Matt Brady were also discussing this idea.
So the ideas have now come to fruition â€“ how much more discussion do you need other than â€œletâ€™s do itâ€? â€“ and the first TVSMC will take place next week at Workhouse Coffee on the Oxford Road in Reading. This place comes highly recommended by Drew (and has a good review). No wifi, though, so I guess weâ€™ll all have to talk to each other.
Looking forward to it!
