A little over a week ago I was at the Next Web conference. There I saw a girl that I knew online, but not offline. Marlooz (Marloes Veldhuizen). No for those of you who haven't been following the twitters of me of late, we've been having a true web 2.0 dating affair. I will take you through it all now... So I think the best start is a video which Marlooz posted about it to explain how it started.

So now I have a date! It's been a good 4 years since I've been on a first date and I have to admit I was a bit nervous. But, I had all my twitter friends (and hers, and her parents and even a couple of ex's watching) so there was no added pressure. I sent her twitters about where the restaurant was that we would meet up at.

We streamed most of the date and you can find an archive of tweets about the date here thanks to @yizmo, also @ twitpoint thanks to @rotjong:

Here are some pics from dinner:

And of course some videos that we streamed live:

We met up with some other vloggers and tweeps in De Balie becuase of course they were following the whole thing live and wanted to join in on the fun.
