Hi all

Just ran a session known as a "huddle" in GeekUp terms.  GeekUp[1] is  
a group of monthly events in North West England.  The Sheffield one  
starts with a huddle every month, which is intended to have more  
audience participation than a pure talk.  For this one, I got an  
unsuspecting audience (of developers, designers, business analysts,  
project managers, and itinerant alcoholics stumbling past our end of  
the bar) writing user stories and fighting^H^H^H^H^H discussing in a  
civilised manner which was most important.

Second half was a tech demo, and they all loved Cucumber.  So hats off  
to everyone involved in RSpec Stories and to Aslak for its recent re- 
incarnation, it had a room full of geeks going "I want that for my PHP  

Slides are on my blog[2] for anyone that wants a flick through, or to  
find out more about what went on.
