The end of WorthingThing, the beginning of WorthingDigital

On the 26th of January 2012 the members of WorthingThing met at the Fresh Egg offices to discuss how the group could change to better serve the local digital community. We decided that the events that we had been running were no longer really working for us.

WorthingDigital Jan 2012

WorthingThing began in August 2008, starting as a series of impromptu tweetups and grew in to a monthly gathering of people with an interest in all things digital and online.

WorthingDigital will replace WorthingThing from next month. It will be a more structured event, hosted by Fresh Egg. Each meetup will begin with a digital themed lightning talk, followed by discussions & an opportunity to get to know other people in the local digital scene.

We’ll be promoting the new group quite heavily over the coming weeks. We’re also planning to revamp the website. You’ll be able to find details of upcoming events & past speakers and a members directory.

Mark Ford gave a brief talk at the start of the evening on the history of WorthingThing & the challenges ahead. You can view the slides below
