Sex and geeks don’t fit together or compute, most would say. However the truth may be the total opposite.
This quarter we take a brave step into the explicit adult world of sex, lies and alternative lifestyles by following the geek world underground.
Join us on the wild ride in to the unknown, in a series of open talks and discussions. Next stop sexy town.
Not many people know but every once in a while I do a talk at BarCamps titled “Sex.” I usually do it to be slightly controversial and to bring a certain edge to the talks which can be far too technical for some.
I’ve had mixed success, I think the funniest session was at BarCampLiverpool while the most serious was at BarCampLondon7. (Not sure what that says about the cities)
However while talking one night in the Northern Quarter with Samantha and Joshi about BarCampManchester3 and my plans to do another one. I mentioned the sex talks I’ve done previously and that meme must have stuck in Samantha’s head (I need to get better at doing that). She had a word with Hwa Young Jung over at Madlab (Manchester’s digital laboratory) and bish bosh boof we have a new series of talks and discussions planned for the next few months.
Of course we’re also after knowledgeable and thought provoking guests for the future, so if that interest you, give us a message on twitter.
