Web Wednesday v.35 @ Volar – 21 April 2010 – aNobii

The next Web Wednesday meet is this coming Wednesday, 21 April, at Volar, Basement, 38-44 D’Aguilar Street, Lan Kwai Fong, Central, Hong Kong.

Given the renewed buzz about ebooks created by the recently launched iPad, I thought it only fitting to invite Greg Sung, the Founder and CEO of aNobii – “the neatest thing for booklovers since paper”, to speak at this month’s social mixer on Wednesday 21st April at Volar Bar & Club, Basement, 38-44 D’Aguilar Street, Lan Kwai Fong, Central, Hong Kong.

Greg will explain how he has successfully tapped into people’s passion for reading to create a community of digital bookworms, who have shared over 19 million titles via personalised bookshelves. We will also discuss how aNobii is using barcordes and iPhones to make the reading and book ordering experience so much more convenient.

The mixer will kick off at 6:30pm and wind up around 9:30pm, with the interview starting at 7:15pm.

As per usual, there’s a HK$100 entrance fee, including one complimentary drink. Web Wednesday’s lovely assistant, Vivian, will issue receipts if you need one. (For students, you can get in for HK$50 without free booze). Thereafter, all standard drinks will be charged at special happy hour prices.

Web Wednesday will donate 10% of entrance fees to Oxfam Hong Kong.
