I'm a big fan of TechSmith products, ever since I discovered their screen capture software (although it's really so much more) SnagIt, a couple of years ago.
When I started getting into video earlier this year I bought the same company's screencasting software Camtasia Studio 5, and it wasn't hard to see why this was THE software everybody producing screencasts was using. It's another beautifully written and designed piece of software. Currently it only runs on the PC but a Mac version is on its way!
Betsy Weber is TechSmith's chief evangelist, and is visiting the UK, apparently for the first time in 15 years, next week. Betsy is well known from conferences all around the world and a popular and enthusiastic supporter of community so she's going to be pretty busy throughout her trip, attending community events and conferences in London, Brighton and Scotland during her whirlwind visit.
Before she heads off for a conference in Brighton she has one night in London and so I suggested perhaps having a geek dinner to celebrate her stop-over, not really having a clue as to how I would organise it at the time! Luckily the wonderful folks at London Geek Dinners agreed to advertise what they call a 'mini-geek dinner' and I haven't had to do anything other than liaise a bit with them :)
So we're all set for an informal geek dinner in London on the evening of 3rd September. If you're as much a fan of TechSmith's products as I am I do hope you'll come along. You can find all the details here so please check the venue location and let us know you're coming if you want to meet Betsy.
I hope to see you there!
