2009 turned out to be pretty remarkable year that charted a path unexpected 12 months ago.
Being involved with Twestival by arranging the Nottingham Twestival in February was the trigger for much of the rest of the year. The event was a modest success and introduced me to people who would become friends over the coming months. Meeting a great crowd of creative and techies at Nottingham Twestival led me to setting up a regular event, Web 2.0 Surgery. The event was a great excuse for a meetup and this also coincided with a other events starting up and gaining popularity in Nottingham in 2009.
Our 3 week trip to Peru was an amazing experience which took us to Machu Picchu and everywhere in between. This was also a key reason for using Kiva to issue loans in Peru.
September brought Twestival Local which raised money for The National Autistic Society and there is another event planned for March 2010.
There was a great turn out for the last Web 2.0 Surgery of 2009 and with co-operation with the eBusinessChampions initiative it looks to be even better in 2010.
Happy 2010 to all!
