About Anecdotes

Anecdotes is an event and video series telling personal stories from people working with technology. By Rick Chadwick.

It started as a side-project to add some video content to the DotYork conference series. In 2016, Rick decided to merge DotYork and Anecdotes as a single-project, to broaden the appeal of the events (outside of the web).


Our events are for curious minds, working in or wanting to explore technology. They aren’t technical in content, we just share personal stories from the people working with various technologies. Each event will take a different focus (theme) but be suitable for similar audiences.

Rick has been producing events since the first DotYork in 2014. They are relatively small (around 200-300 people) and are always a friendly, safe environment to encourage the sharing of stories and create a positive learning experience.


The video-side of thing has slowed since those first interviews but you can expect that to pick back up throughout 2017 and beyond.

Our videos tell the personal stories of people working with technology. You’ll also find recordings of talks from our events.
