Rupert Murdoch doesn't often get ruffled but recent events in Manchester have the tycoon calling for his closest aides. A few months ago I revealed that a secret leaked NxtGen document showed plans for their Risk-like domination of the UK and all has come true. NxtGen are opening another outpost and this time its in Manchester on Wednesday 20th May 2009 (no doubt they were anxious to get the first event in before DDD South West on Saturday 23rd May 2009) where Andy Wilkinson and Steve Robbins are the latest recruits for the Midlands' fuhrers. Rupert Murdoch probably brushes aside such expansion plans as "just some guys running a few .NET user groups" but he's heard the rumours of The Daily NxtGen and worse still the plans for the Russian TV network NxtSkyGen. If Murdoch is afraid just think how Obama feels.
On a less speculative note I'm sad to say that I won't be doing the grand opening this time as DDD South West is just a few days later and there will be lots to sort out in our land of freedom.
