Despite my current car trouble (gearbox again damnit!) I managed to hook up with Paolo and Monica before they headed off on their US trip.
We caught up over some pretty good chinese food (at the London Hong Kong restaurant on the Bath road) and talked a little about BloggerCon and Gnomedex. Alas I cannot make it to these events but I do hope to make it to BlogTalk Reloaded in October. In fact Paolo and I have talked about driving there together as we have in the past.
