The Theory of (R)Evolution?

The history of the internet is one of evolution in technology and revolution in daily life. From its humble beginnings in 1957, through the dot-com crash of the 90′s and todays web of convenience: the best online ideas survive, the weak fail.

So, have a pint and join us for some of the fittest ideas in true Darwinian spirit in the birthplace of evolutionary thought, Shrewsbury.

The Theory of (R)Evolution is an event, run by Shropgeek, showcasing some of the most forward thinking ideas on the web today.
