Piers Fawkes: Reviving Likemind Coffee Mornings
It's time to revisit the monthly event and bring the technology, creativity and media industries back together.
When Noah Brier and I started likemind a few years ago it was on a bit of a whim, but it came to represent something both Noah and I really believed in: Starting to take online relationships offline. likemind was a place where people from the internet could meet and share ideas over a cup of coffee. As crazy as it is, that was five years ago and obviously quite a bit has happened in the meantime.
Over the last year or so likemind has lapsed a bit. Like any community it requires tending and life got in the way. But looking back, there was something bigger: There was just less need for a shared space for meeting internet people. Not that it isn’t important, but rather that it feels like everywhere is now that place.
