Stormhoek and Microsoft – Friendly Competitors


Last Saturday evening in London we co-sponsored with our friendly competitors, Microsoft, a get together for the blogging community.

The evening was hosted by our friend Hugh Macleod at The Texas Embassy in Trafalgar Square and over 100 people turned up.

It was a great chance for us to meet Robert Scoble from Microsoft. He was on the final leg of a three week European tour which had seen him take in several countries, including France, Belgium, Italy and Ireland.

It also gave us an opportunity to talk and share a glass of wine with many of the bloggers who have expressed their views and opinions about Stormhoek over the past months.

One of the weird things about the blogosphere is that you get to know about people before you meet them. Doing so for the first time is just like bumping into an old friend. I really enjoyed meeting up with Andrew Jaffe, our favourite astrophysicist, Andrew Denny, a media consultant and expert on the canals of England, Sam Sethi, who also sells wine in his spare time, Michael Jennings, who’s a great friend of and collaborator with, Adriana Cronin-Lukas and last, but by no means least, Gia Milinovich.

A great evening was had by everyone, hope we can do it again soon.
