Blogger Meetup Logo

Last night was the RSA Europe 2009 Security Bloggers Meetup. It was held at the Fountains Abbey Pub in London, UK and was a complete success.

Dale and I showed up at the pub at 6:00 to start setting up. With the help of Melanie from eclat marketing, we were able to get everything ready on time.

People started trickling in around 7:30 and we eventually had 30+ people all having a great time enjoying the chance to relax and talk with their peers.

Things clicked right along and the last of us left around 11:00.

I enjoyed making new acquaintances and talking with a number of people in person that I have interacted with on-line.

I would like to thank Dale Pearson (http://www.securityactive.co.uk/) for his invaluable help in arranging things for the meetup. Without his efforts, the event would not have been anywhere as successful as it was.

We would also like to express our sincere gratitude to our sponsors who allowed us to provide nibblies and drinks:

www.qualys.com | www.ironkey.com | www.isaca.org | www.eskenzipr.com | www.eclat.co.uk

We are already looking forward to next year and hoping to make it an even bigger success!

Kevin, Dale and Benny
