Web Wednesday V35.0 - April 21st

Note: Event postponed to 21st April at Volar, Lan Kwai Fong.

Calling all Asian Digerati!

Given the renewed buzz about ebooks created by the recently launched iPad, I thought it only fitting to invite Greg Sung, the Founder and CEO of aNobii - "the neatest thing for booklovers since paper", to speak at this month's social mixer on Wednesday 21st April at Volar Bar & Club, Basement, 38-44 D'Aguilar Street, Lan Kwai Fong, Central, Hong Kong.

Greg will explain how he has successfully tapped into people's passion for reading to create a community of digital bookworms, who have shared over 19 million titles via personalised bookshelves. We will also discuss how aNobii is using barcodes, iPhones and iPads to make the reading and book ordering experience so much more convenient.

The mixer will kick off at 6:30pm and wind up around 9:30pm, with the interview starting at 7:15pm.

As usual, there's a HK$100 entrance fee (paid at the door) which includes one complimentary drink and access to the whole event. Our lovely assistant, Vivian, will issue receipts if you need one. (For students, you can get in for HK$50 without free booze). Thereafter, all standard drinks will be charged at special happy hour prices.

We will donate 10% of entrance fees to Oxfam Hong Kong.

Looking forward to seeing old faces and meeting many more new ones!
