Cambridge Meetup was a huge success


A huge thank you to everyone that attended the #newsteem meetup in Cambridge today. People travelled a combined total of several hundreds of miles to have a chat and catch up. I was going to do the math but decided that it was far to complicated.

This meetup my friends is what you call true dedication. No one got paid to be here. We just want to make steem great in any way that we can and that takes coordination and joined up thinking.
Great ideas came thick and fast from everyone. Steemians are not your average kind of people.

If you are not following these steemians already then I suggest you check them out pronto. To have so many truly talented and skilled people in so many different fields all in one place was just fantastic.
Deals were done and plans were made.

The conversation was non stop and covered a huge range of topics but I will let the others tell you their part of the story of this fabulous day in the sunshine with commited individuals and a wish to shake things up.

Epic Steemians

Left to right: Steve, Ade, Gillian, Shani, Sapphira & Basil.

It would be impossible to relate the number of things we discussed, thrashed out and clarified but suffice to say that some very specific plans were made for the immediate future that we can all get involved with.

More details to follow and a new steem proposal is in the works. For now just scroll through and have a look at a few of the photos of the day.

Once again a huge thank you all of you individually for making this meet up such a great event.

Getting 5.75% of the entire UK steemian brigade in one place on the same day is pretty amazing.

Your passion made it happen. It was a privilege to meet you all.

Steem on

Sounds like an excellent event @molometer.

Looking forward to hearing more about the new plans.

It was excellent and buzzing as you would expect. 7 of us made it to the meetup which is amazing when you think about it logistically?
We devised a workable plan to expand steem influence into a new area.

It will all become clear soon and it doesn't entail onboarding a gazillion hapless new users who we immediately lose.

Exciting new projects coming very soon.

It was a lovely day and exciting to make plans for the future.
The weather was sublime for September.
The UK weather is always interesting and surprising. 👍

The video was ok but no audio.
I forgot to turn the shotgun mic on? 😂😂 Dooh! Rookie mistake but I've just started using it. That's my excuse. 😂
Maybe I can make a montage with some music?

Nothing like the energy of a meetup. We know other steemsters aren't just pixels, but meeting in person is a whole other thing. Glad it went well.

You know, this germans try to do it in their style. ;-)

Just kidding, this format came out of the first few Meetups by itself. We only add beer and food.

Thanks for organising this. I want sure how many were coming, but was pleasantly surprised by the turnout. Great to see Basil again. You did a great job with the weather. The conversation is always intense at these events and generally more positive that some might expect. When's the next one?

Me too, I was very impressed by the turnout. Astonished even. I had no idea who would be able to make it.

If anyone is up for it we could do another one to sort out the SPS ideas. 👍

I was wondering if it would be you, me and Basil, but it was great the others could make it too from far and wide. Just need to keep the enthusiasm going. I heard some of what you guys were plotting. You need to put something together for that.

Basil has a meeting this week with a director and other production people. It will be interesting to see what we can put together.

I'd would have liked to have seen that movie short that the Canadian chap made. I can't recall his name?

I hope Brian comes back
He was really into it. I had good chats with him at Steemfest.

Yep, Brian wanted to hold a steemfest over in Canada last time.
Have you seen his YouTube channel?

I really like the whole idea behind Obyte and Boinc.
Doing something useful with devices when they are idle is a win win.

Glad you could make it Gillian, so good to meet people in the flesh.

Maybe organise one in Brighton? I'd be up for a trip to the seaside. 👍

Yep. Organising one in Brighton has been on my to-do list for a very long time now. Now there's a surprise! 😂

The weather was the easy part. 👍😂
It was great to meet you and share our stories. So many overlapping elements.
I'm just reading your most recent post and am looking into the reggae token options. 3 days in Jamaica sounds fabulous. 👍😀

Oh that is really cool! I am jealous of course. That looked to be a proper good time!

Next time you will have to twist the arm of @c0ff33a although I have no idea where he resides lol.

It is great when you can get a few steemians together in one place.
The conversations flow thick and fast.

@c0ff33a is up north of me. In Leeds as I recall and it is a good few hours drive away.

Cambridge is a very beautiful city for a visit. Not that we saw much as everyone was super excited to share their ideas.

Looks like a great time was had by all!!!
