Social networking Zero is a monthly event which is usually held on the last Wednesday of the month, at the Adelphi pub on Hunslet road. It is an event which has been set up to appeal to a cross desciplinary audience of creatives, technical people, account handlers, SEO's, affliliate types - and pretty much anyone else who has an interest in digital in Leeds.
The "constitution" for the events is pretty much that we will...
- give you as a member of Leeds digital media a forum to come and share ideas and talk about digital things with people who do similar jobs to you
- promise not to make you do or listen to anything you don't want to, which includes presentations on anything
And that's it. The reason that social networking Zero was set up was to allow people to talk to people without the other things that events usually have that draw you and everyone else away from talking to each other.
Bored of emailing people and never talking to anyone unless they're on facebook? snZero is about re-energising people towards speaking to each other around tables with beer on. It may take off. People may end up back on facebook in dark rooms.
