I’m in the airport waiting for my flight to London, and since my last post on my travels, a lot of Londoners have pinged me asking to meet up while I’m there. Funny story: I was very briefly the Publisher of Wired UK, and it was my distinct regret to have to close down that office when the US company decided it was never going to make a profit. So what did I do? I invited the entire London staff to a bar off Picadilly, called the Atlantic, slapped down my corporate card, and got the whole team well and truly pissed, as they say over there.

So, in honor of my past trials and tribs, I’d like to meet any and all of you who care to meet at the Atlantic this coming Saturday. As far as I can tell it doesn’t have a website, but here’s some info, and a Frommer’s link:
