Edinburgh Champagne Morning

edinburgh coffee morning - ewan mcintosh

Last week only four turned up. This week, ten turned up for probably the last Edinburgh Coffee Morning of 2007. What better way to start the morning than with a complimentary slice of Panettone and a glass of Prosecco sparkling wine from the owners of the Centotre.

If that wasn’t enough, Ewan came along bearing gifts. A number of signed Stormhoek posters from Hugh MacLeod. Mine is already pinned up in the Terinea office, thank you Ewan and Hugh.

The main highlight was Ewan demonstrating Seemic which you can see in action below. Although in true Ewan fashion, he started filming with no prior warning, so you end up sounding stupid and say something like “IT”!

Here is another short video of us drinking at 8:55 taken with my new Samsung F700.

Edinburgh Coffee Morning

This mornings meeting (Edinburgh Coffee Morning) was a sell out thanks to Ewan inviting along some of his teaching/blogging colleagues.

Full report at Ewan’s blog, but the highlights for me where…

  • Meeting Mark (Drinking coffee to the left of the picture) of the infamous Spanish Coffee Break podcast series, I think its been number one in the charts in the past year.
  • Graham Holliday of noodlepie.com who will shortly be writing for the Guardian Food blog
  • And Ewan embarrassing me by putting me on the spot to demo 3D desktop effects in Ubuntu, generally not talking much sense.
