My ramblings on the stuff that holds it all together
Where there are geeks, there are gadgets – a cautionary vBeers tale
At the London VMUG we’ve held social beers in a pub after the event for over 10 years, in what has become known as vBeers.
In all that time I’m pleased to say that we’ve never had any problems, it’s all been good social fun. As you’d expect most of our attendees come with gadgets. Laptops, tablets, phones, watches etc. and we’ve never had any issues – other than the occasional identical bag or phone picked up by mistake. but quickly resolved.
Unfortunatley at our most recent event we were targetted by an oportunist thief who helped themselves to a selecton of gadgets from the bag pile – directly under the pub CCTV system.
The pub think they have identified the thief on CCTV and will be handing it over to the police.
Hopefully that won’t detract from future events or discourage you from attending some crime is unfortunatley inevitable in a large city like London but please do be careful and don’t make yourself a target. Keep an eye on your bag as you never know who is keeping an eye on your bag for you.
