A couple of bits of SF community news

First up, a new writers group in London is looking for members:

The Middle Oak Writing Group is looking for a couple of new members. We meet once a month on a Tuesday evening in a private house in East Barnet, near Oakleigh Park railway station. We cover both science fiction and fantasy and novel instalments as well as short stories.
The current members find that being a small group works well for face to face feedback but we want to expand slightly to avoid having to cancel a meeting when more than one person has to drop out for that evening.
For more info, please contact Sandra Unerman (sandraunerman379 at  btinternet dot com)

Dr Peter J Bentley and Dr Soo Ling Lim – scientists based at the Department of Computer Science, University College London have been in touch to ask for help with a survey to research into a collaborative technologies for writers. Are you a writer? If so, they would be very grateful of your help. Click here to take part in the survey.
