AFQY the history

"Social Networking in real-time, a.k.a. a few quiets at the bar"

A Few Quiet Yarns started with 12 people and 14+ years later over30,000+ have attended and been introduced by Founder Ryan "The Lion" Ashton. 

The introductions go back to the first event, where Ryan noticed that people had run out of conversation talking to the same person, so he interrupted and started introducing everyone and connecting those who had mutually beneficial discussions to hold but hadn't started. Such as Quinn Nahi and John Corey who discussed Fibre Optic backbones (this was back in 2009), and the introductions have never stopped and make the event what it is.

Below is the "No Woman. No Man" Event video followed by the promotional launch video below it:

We've just marked the 1 year mark of the global covid journey back in March, I remember the dates well as AFQY March 26th was the second day of lockdown and originally it was cancelled, then converted (aka pivoted) to online. This is a reflection on the ups and downs, the learnings and lessons.
