I kid, I kid.
I heard yesterday in regards to a meeting at the Creative Coffee Club (and full disclosure: I didn’t attend yesterday and the info came at least third-hand) that the regular meeting at the Heights was “only for the Tuttle elite“.
We have a Tuttle elite? Do we get the same fascist uniform as the guy in Pan’s Labyrinth? Shades and braces is always a good look. Where was my memo?
As I say I missed the original comment so it could have been in jest, but just to clarify: both the Tuttle and Creative Coffee Club are open to one and all. We even have Tuttlers who haven’t been able to make a Friday morning Social Media Cafe yet.
We’re hardly exclusive and all the decisions about what we do are in the wild, either up on the wiki, in a previous blog post (as Lloyd so elequantly pointed out as I was writing this rubbish one) or discussed over a croissant. We’re also more than happy to open the blog up so if you wanna be a regular contributor, do a couple of guest posts or just help out more then please get in touch.
Creative Coffee Club isn’t affiliated with the Tuttle in any way besides the fact that some of the same faces pop up at both events. Generally CCC is a much smaller gathering which leads to a single conversation around varying topics as opposed to the larger free for all we have on a Friday in Soho. It meets every other Wednesday in London and normally the slack is picked up by a regular CCC in Leicester (but that’s mothballed for the summer). Everyone is more than welcome to the CCC and indeed the more the merrier. I regularly attend both, but don’t let that put you off.
The fact that CCC is sometimes discussed at the Tuttle and vice versa is just a happy accident due to so many of the same people appearing at similar events. At CCC we’re also joined by people from a number of other networks and we always try and promote the Social Media Cafe as well as all the other cool stuff going on in London that we’re aware of.
To take that interaction and crossover a step further, Tuttlers may be interested in checking out Network of Networks: a plan to put together a large regular event that brings us all together in the same manner as tonight’s Moo party, run unconference style. And I’m in danger of getting old saying this, but that too is open to everyone and I’d love more input on it, both online and/or in person at any of the various events I drink coffee and beer at.
I’m usually the guy in the corner trying to look as anti-elite as possible (those of you that have already met me know I can pull this off with daring ease).
