Meeting Report:

Mike Ball writes an informative and amusing post about this month’s meeting, Mixed Media Bag:

Once a month, I head to a bar not to drink. Boston Media Makers has its rectangular motley monthly at Doyle’s in Boston Jamaica Plain neighborhood.

As an aside, when we moved to JP over 20 years ago, we heard the same answer to where do you like to eat and where do you like to drink — Doyle’s. Hyperactive video-blogging king Steve Garfield started this video/film/blog/podcast thingummy, now in its second location after Sweet Finnish coffee shop died.

Maybe I shouldn’t mention BMM. It’s usually jammed. Yet, in a given month, typically a third of the folk at the huge set of tables are first timers.

Thanks Mike!

Alex Howard, now relocated to Washington, DC, writes about Boston Media Makers and Doyle’s, Ode to Boston: Of Friends, Fried Clams and Fans:

6. Boston Media Makers. I’ve been going to DC Media Makers but this group of bloggers, videographers, artists, writers, hackers, technologists and characters taught me something new whenever I attended. Thank you, Steve Garfield.

7. For that matter, I miss Doyle’s, where Media Makers meets. Doyle’s is a Boston institution for politicians and JP residents alike, and serves a damn good pint of stout.

Thanks Alex.
