"The" Lloyd Davis is well-known in London circles for creating, with his 200 best friends, the Tuttle Club which was pretty much the closest thing London has ever seen to Silicon Valley tech culture. But it’s only one of about fifty three fascinating facets of this mercurial master of mysteries. Lloyd will tell us stories. He may show us some pictures. There may even be some thinking about the nature of community and, dare I say it, society.

There will be ukeleke.

=== short official bio follows ===

Lloyd Davis is a social artist and master community builder. He has been blogging and podcasting since 2004. With a diverse background that includes theatre, information management and public service regulation he has acquired a unique, in-depth and practical understanding of the social web and building rich relationships online and off. Having founded London’s highly influential Tuttle Club which regularly attracts the UK’s brightest social media thinkers and doers, Lloyd writes, speaks and consults about these uses of social technology. He has been Social Artist in Residence at the University of London’s Centre for Creative Collaboration since 2010 and is currently exploring the life of an itinerant knowledge worker, travelling and working around the UK with the help of his online social network.

Curtis Faith is one of Those People. You know the type - up to something, globally scheming for a better world, knows a really interesting sideways truth about damn near anything, and has a connection to most scenes. He’s That Man. About a year ago he kicked off one of the most productive periods of my life by challenging me to write down The Plan to deal with The Situation, and my explanation of why I could not is still about the best thing I’ve written. He’s the right voice at the right time.

Visiting us from Savannah, Georgia, U.S.A. - @inflector.

Just one human working to make the world better like everyone else. Hacker. Revolutionary. Building a new status quo. Weaving weavers. Connecting connectors.

A small group tonight, not unexpectedly. Seven people, and a three hour discussion of the nature of redistribution taxation under capitalism and communism.

I can’t do it much more justice than that. You had to be there.

Everything that you ever wanted to know about rocket science, but were afraid to ask.

An absolute extravaganza!

We didn’t have an event this Tuesday - more time for discussions about where Truth & Beauty was going. I felt we’d gotten a little off track in November because of the incredible guest speakers: content over community, and that we needed to slow down a little and regroup.

December’s good for that, so we decided to drop back to once a week for December.

Also we don’t have catering this month!
