The “Manchester Multicultural Workshop” was a success! Countries represented were Spain, Italy and Poland. We started at the “Grand Central” Pub where we could enjoy some live music (Britt-heavy metal, actually).
Then we moved to the “Fab Cafe”... yes, the one that was visited the night before and I couldn't remember the name written on the door (too long). I strongly recommend to visit its website. This bar is what a Sci-Fi maniac deserves! There you'll find Star Trek's ships models, gadgets from the Dr. Who series, even an “Outrun” arcade! It's so... “retromodern”.
When the “Fab Cafe” closed, we moved to “Charlie's”, which is a nearby disco. There we could enjoy some great House music sessions. We were lucky with the live music in general that night and, we were very lucky to have the opportunity to meet all our “Grid-friends” and make new ones. As it always happens in this kind of events, new collaboration proposals were made that night (“Ideas Exchange is not being made only in the Exchange Rooms”). Let's see how they evolve in the future!
Now it's time for me to thank all the people from the event for being themselves: FANTASTIC. I would like to thank specially Massimo Lamanna for the organization and support, and Rosy Mondardini for considering me for the GridCast initiative this week (Grazie di cuore!). Of course, my thanks go also to you, my readers. I hope you have enjoyed reading my GridCast entries as that was my commitment.
Well, that's all, I really hope to meet you all as soon as possible. Manchester was great... really great!
P.D. I'll post all the photos I took this week in the Gallery Section of my website. This is going to happen in two weeks or so, as I'm going to Rio de Janeiro for the CCGrid'07 Conference, so please be patient.
