We've got another event happening and it is perfect for everyone!
This event is about Technology and Journalism and we will be having talks by those deeply involved in Journalism. We will gather at the great Thoughtworks offices where Wired will have dropped off a copy of their mag *and* a discount code for everyone, then have a quick drink of wine or juice before listening to the talks followed by chatting and nibbles.
