ProZ.com powwow: Resuming the London Powwows.

November 28, 2009, 2:30 pm
United KingdomLondonIn personEnglish
Welcome back to the London Powwows! Venue: "The King and Queen" pub, on the corner of Foley Street and Cleveland Street (postcode W1W 6DL), 130 metres south of the Telecom Tower. [See a map, and a web page about this pub]. Nearest Tube station: Goodge Street. Other stations not far away: Warren Street, Regent's Park, Gt. Portland Street, Euston Square.

We shall be in the meeting room upstairs. There are tables and chairs and, even when the TV downstairs is on (not every Saturday), it will be quiet. The event is free but the landlord asks everybody to make a contribution of £1 (1 pound) to a charity: Macmillan Nurses (there's a collecting box in the pub). There may be a discussion topic or a talk (about different TM programs), but this is not yet finalised. I suggest the powwow should end not later than 18:00.

Availability of Tube trains: on 28 November, there will be some limitations on the Jubilee, Metropolitan, Circle and District lines. More information here (use the "this date" option and/or the "track closures" PDF file).

Ignore this "posting". I'm making it because of a problem I had with postings a few days ago.

Thank you Oliver for organising this.

Idalina gave a wonderful informative talk, and I thoroughly enjoyed the lively discussions with all of you. It was the first London Powwow I attended, but hopefully the first of many!

See you again soon!

Guest speaker Nov 5, 2009

We shall probably be having a talk by a guest speaker from Imperial College - I am at present discussing the details with her. It will be about different CAT tools.
