Although... Too Many Dudes. Something to fix for next time.
Here's a pic of our sign to alert people that this was a Coffee Morning With Intent.
And Ben is part of Knyttan which does on-demand knitted jumpers on industrial knitting machines. Here he is wearing the test pattern, which had a lot of fans.
So, what happened? We sat round a table and people chatted with people. Zero structure, except for 5 minutes for everyone to say their names and what they're doing at moment (arcade machines, newspapers, jumpers, just interested). Plus coffee. I think everyone left at about 11. I'm not sure what everyone else discussed but I had a chat about telescopes and another about what a "minimum viable product" is in hardware, and also I found out about a hardware/making cluster at Somerset House, all of which was very enjoyable.
Conclusions. I like coffee and I like mornings and I liked chatting with everyone. There will be another! Probably next week. I'll let you know.
