Web Wednesday Hong Kong - Social Mixer V28.0 (Sept 2)

Thank you to our 130 guests and to Leon Ho for sharing his secrets to a productive life, using a combination of online and paper technologies at our August social mixer. If you missed it live, you can listen at your own leisure here. (For automatic updates, subscribe to our podcast channel -

Our next networking event (V28.0) will be on Wednesday 2nd September, where apart from movin' and groovin' with the Asian Digerati, you'll have a chance to participate in an interview with Hong Kong's leading Twitter Star, Jay Oatway, the man behind (@jayoatway, @portension, @chargedmobi) and lead organiser of Twestival Hong Kong (@twestivalhk).

The topic is: "Twitter: pointless babble or ambient intimacy?" How has this microblogging phenomenon grown from 2 million to 40 million users in the past 12 months and what are the implications?

The night kicks off at 6:30pm and ends around 9:30pm, so you'll have plenty of opportunity to mix with the movers and shakers of our local Internet and global tweeting communities.

There will be an entrance fee of HK$100, unless you're a bona-fide student, in which case it's HK$50. This includes one complimentary drink. All other drinks are at Happy Hour prices. (We will issue a receipt, if you require one). As per usual, we will donate 10% of entrance fees to a local charity.

Do invite fellow social media fans to join the Asian Twitterati on Wednesday 2nd September at Volar Bar & Club, Basement, 38-44 D'Aguilar Street, Lan Kwai Fong, Central.

Sign up for the event on Facebook, LinkedIn or on this blog.

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

Napoleon Biggs
Founder & Host - Web Wednesday
