It was a simple plan. We checked the weather. It looked good. We found a huge venue, with all the facilities. We told you to come. And you did. At least 300 tech people swamped London's Southbank yesterday for our long overdue Summer #CrunchUp, and the festivities went on late into the night.
For an event with not much organisation – and not even name tags – it seems like everyone managed to have a lot of fun and find eachother. Random tourists may well have been bemused by the conversations about startups, venture capital, Google+ and APIs as they walked past.
I'd like to formally thank the generous people who bought everyone wine, beer and jugs of ice-cold Pimms!
