Now the Wall Street Journal's Opening a Coffee Shop For Tech Chats, Too

By Kat Hannaford on at

Following on the quinoa-powered heels of The Guardian, the Wall Street Journal is opening up (coffee) shop in the "Silicon Roundabout" for two days next week, where a series of tech-centric talks and events will be held over skinny flat whites, MacBooks, and Moleskines.

It's actually the second time the WSJ has "popped-up" in London's Shoreditch, with similar ventures in New York, Berlin and South Korea.

For this one, events held from 9am on Wednesday 25 September until 9pm on Thursday 26 September Rotary Room at The Rotary Bar & Diner, 70 City Road, London, EC1Y 2BY will include sessions from Deezer and Songkick dudes; Pink Floyd's drummer Nick Mason (who'll be discussing music copyright), a whole host of venture capitalists which I won't bore you with, plus a chat on gaming from Gamesbrief's Nicholas Lovell, who works with Atari and Square Enix.

I'd flesh out the details of what a Giz UK coffee shop would look like, but I fear I'd end up burning everyone's beans after being forced to listen to yet another irate Android fanboy's rants. [Tech Cafe]
