The IPKat's 10th birthday: join our celebration!


It's hard to imagine that a whole decade has passed since the IPKat, shortly to be followed by Merpel, first poked his nose into the blogosphere -- but that's the truth. And now, on Wednesday 12 June, the IPKat's current blogging team, together with some names and faces from the past, invite you to join them in a celebration.

This event will take the form of an afternoon seminar on IP and the Social Media, a topic that is both timely and relevant to bloggers, tweeters and other contributors to the social media.

This event is kindly hosted in the lovely and capacious London office of Allen & Overy LLP (Annsley the AmeriKat's firm), which you can find here.

This is what the programme looks like:

Ah, I won't be able to come to this, but I'll look out for the tweets. Have a great party.

Why don't you arrange a live Internet streaming for those unable to attend and for the Kat's many overseas fans?

Possibly a bit late to be seen on this particular post, but will there be a dress code?
