They say baking your own bread is the new black. I'd suggest it might actually be networking. In Edinburgh Friday morning at Centotre is where it's all happening with the Edinburgh Coffee Morning. This is informal networking where the only two requirements are that you turn up and buy a coffee. There are no speeches or presentations. And no having to bring in new members. You just come and chat and learn and share.
I've just finished a series of portraits of some of the attendees. Social media and internet geeks, marketing and design professionals, business start ups they're all here. And if you're a Twitterer the hashtag is #EdCM.
