MELD is an organisation with the goal to bring together journalists and new media. On this Monday, 15.10., MELD officially launched in Leeds with an event in the Boutique Bar in Hirst Yard, not far from the train line and the canal.
I am rarely in this area; Hirst Yard seems to be a relict of the "old Leeds", a narrow urban backyard. Glad that such areas still exist. The Boutique bar seems to be one of those "In" places in Leeds. On the top floor is where the event takes place. Approx. 20-30 people are there. We talk about possible projects, and I propose my ideas re. intelligent automated computing and journalistic story telling.
