(see the comments for the meetup times and locations)
There are a few reasons for this event.
First, John Allsopp is in the country and we wanted to have an excuse to meet up with him and say hi.
Second, I have recently been in contact with a few people in the UK community about the subject of web design/development and education. What can we do in the community to help improve the way web stuff is taught at educational institutions? We are also thinking of organizing a more formal UK event to discuss this subject properly at a later date, and wanted to discuss that. If you have a passion for education and want to discuss this stuff, we'd love to have you over!
Third, there are loads of lovely people in the London area that we hardly ever get to see, so this is a good excuse.
