Edinburgh Coffee Morn Social Media Quiz of the Year.

Cmquiz

Last Friday saw the 2nd Anniversary, and so, not co-incidentally the 2nd birthday party of the Edinburgh Coffee Morn.

We celebrated this auspicious event, with a Quiz at Centotre for the great and the good of the city's Social Media Community.

And what a turn out it was, a veritable who's who of bloggers, blaggers, and twittering classes. Web developers, digital agencies, search, mobile, start ups, entrepreneurs, film-makers, writers, community managers, commissioning editors, educationalists, slackers, hangers-on and reprobates were all not only wholesomely represented, but wholeheartedly welcome.

With, in all, well over 30 hardy souls turning up for the bright-lights and cameras at our usual Scottish Presbyterian 0800 start. (Flickr set here.)

7 teams did battle, and wrestled with over 40 fiendishly difficult social media questions.

A damn close run thing, the eventual winners were Nev, Fraser, Jim and Jamie. (A boy-band in the making if ever I saw one.)

Winners

Prizes for the winners, appropriately enough, were scented candles, fragrant bath salts plus other sensual goodies from Juliet's Little Dishy collection.

The winners also recieved signed copies of Throwing Sheep in the Boardroom and The Stories or FaceBook, YouTube and MySpace. (Signed by me, not the author, I hasten to add ;-)

Throwing Fb

Footnote, Jamie was last seen legging it down the road at 09:45 am, with a magnum of Prosecco under his arm. Destination and motive unknown.

Didn't realise it was a platform so mired by such old fashioned concepts like 'waiting' you could make a cup of tea by your bed faster - where's the online quiz? Now please. Or is it that the Twestival has IPR ownership? If so tut tut in these days of shared knowledge disstribution.

Can do Ewan, but will have to put on hold a bit. Have offered to run it on Twitter for Twestival gig attendees.

Would love to have a copy of the quiz online to see how 38minuters get on with it!
