With the upcoming convention in melbourn I think it's about time for us Sydney siders to start doing some serious networking.
If you agree please go here and sign up for the meeting on the 18th!
Currently there are two guys going, so if the other guy pikes then I'll be there all alone :(
That would be really sad. Also I just bought a new laptop so I'll show you all my games and stuff. THIS IS A ONCE IN A LIFETIME EVENT!
Personally I don't think the meetup really gives us all we need to sustain a good indie development community. An associated forum would be good, being able to email other participants without having to fork out money to get a meetup plus membership and having some scope for negotatiating the time/day would be handy. It seems to me that sumea allows all this and more.
I am formulating evil plans about deposing the melbourne meetup in favour of a regular melbourne sumea gathering.
Anyone else with me in this revolution? [:D]
Sounds like a good idea, Combat. I think that a sumea forum would work just as well if not better than the meetup and as you say, its better than paying whatever is they are asking for the 'extra' services. I'll second your revolutionary ideals, comrade. Maybe we should move this to the Sumea related forum for now. If all else fails we can still fall back on the meetup date. Whereever the thing gets organise, the point is that we start meeting up and building those networks.
