Social Leeds – Tuttle and The Social Media Surgery

07/01/2010
Leeds is becoming more social.

An accusation I’ve heard levied against Leeds is that while it’s seemingly open and up for sharing/collaboration on the music front, Leeds is actually made up of a number of unconnected “scenes”. Exciting news however is the discussion of a Leeds Tuttle.

“The Tuttle Club is a loose association of people finding a way of working better together both online and off…  to talk and work around social media… Everybody’s welcome. Yes, everybody.” – tuttleclub.wordpress.com

I for one am keen to see more collaboration between venues, artists, video-artists, musicians, photographers and social-media types in Leeds. The city has been missing a regular meeting of minds event for creative and geeks alike (I’m trying to fit into both categories myself), and Tuttle has been one thing that I’d have loved to attend had I lived anywhere near London… That it’s beginning on my doorstep is a major boon.

For more social goings on, have a look at the blog of Sarah Hartley (involved with Manchester Social Media Cafe and a Surgeon at Leeds Social Media Surgery). The first discussion on the LeedsTuttle.ning is to help decide the venue, so please do hop on if you have any venue ideas, if not, see you at the first one I hope.
