This post comes from Rachel Lane at Blonde digital agency:
I love Mashable. I track them on Facebook, Twitter, by RSS, email and even Google Buzz. I have the Mashable app on my iPhone. Described as a “social media news blog”, I think they go way beyond this and cover all the interesting ways that technology and digital media is being socialised.
Mashable will be five years old on 27th July this year and are looking to organise a particularly interesting monthly “meet-up”. Though there is a meet-up listed for Edinburgh (http://www.meetup.com/Mashable/-1087299/), there is no registered interest and no organiser at present.
It may be that it’s holiday season or simply that the busy people who typically take on such projects are finally busied-out. Social events need social support and social commitment, so this is really an initial call-out to see if anybody else is fussed and if so, would you like to be actively involved?
