Lewis’ guide to ‘G’s and ‘We’s


Yesterday I received an email from Carrie Bishop who is working with G20 Voice to organise a post-G20 Summit get together at Bar Kick, former Shoreditch Twit venue. It’s called G20 meets We20, at which point you might be feeling lost so here’s a quick explanation…


G20 – Group of Twenty (G-20) Finance Ministers and Central Bank Governors was established in 1999 to bring together systemically important industrialized and developing economies to discuss key issues in the global economy. Also a model number from car manufacturer Infiniti.

G20 Summit – On 2 April 2009, world leaders from the G20 countries – representing 85% of the world’s output – will meet in London against the backdrop of the worst international banking crisis in generations.

G20Voice – 50 of the world’s most interesting and influential bloggers will be your eyes and ears at the G20 Summit. They come from 22 different countries, and between them represent a global audience of over 14 million readers. Some are ‘professional bloggers’, others are ordinary citizens who have become well known through their blogs.

G4 – successful vocal troupe made famous by ITV‘s The X Factor television programme in 2004 in which they came second. Also a type of Apple Computer.

We20 – was inspired as a public initiative to run alongside the G20, creating a bridge between the G20 leaders and you. I’m not entirely sure, but I think We20 aims to provide the platform for people like you and me to come up with plans to help save the global economy. Help.

We7 – is an ad-supported music download and streaming site launched in 2007 and supported by ex-Genesis frontman, Peter Gabriel. [disclosure: We7 used to be a Shiny Red client]

G20meetsWe20 – Post G20 Summit meetup which should be a good chance to hear what some G20Voice bloggers, including Vikki Chowney and Lloyd Davis, thought of the summit, and probably play some table football as well.

G-Wiz – electric car produced by Indian company Reva – famously beat a Mustang in a drag race once the Top Gear crew got their hands on a few extra batteries.

Right, that should be clear then?
