Party recap

2004-07-21 14:52:17.858989+00 by Dan Lyke 3 comments

Good party last night! Started a bit slow, I kind of expected people to trickle in early, but we probably had 20-30 people at the peak, everyone seemed to be engaged, and I left having had great discussions all night but still wanting more conversation with people I hadn't talked to. A partial list, and apologies to those I've left out, Mary, Anil, Matt, Bill, Dori, Ruby (whose site might not be up yet), Daniel, Leo, Phil, another Matt, at least another Bill, Kelly, Preston (who's been building electric cars and other alternative vehicles in his retirement), Dana, John (who was showing around the ZVue handheld video and audio player that he did the hardware for that unofficially may be a nice little Linux platform), Brian, Adam, and quite a few others that I'm going to slight by leaving out.

We'll definitely have to do this again in a few months. How about in the South Bay with an under 21 friendly venue?

South Bay, under-21 venue? We are SO there! (Does this mean I'm signing up as co-director with you for this one, Dan?)

I think you just volunteered, Diane!

We need to get a few other webloggers on board to help publicize it to a slightly wider audience, but I'm sure we can rope Bill into helping, maybe I can make some contacts at Friday's shindig, but I'd also like to get beyond the weblog folks.

Heck, I missed Kim, so maybe rather than waiting for too long we should start planning something for mid August down there so we can get her and any other south bay folks we missed, and then plan for another up here in late September. Who's in?

I have in mind a few members of the "slightly wider audience" to invite, and if it's an under-21 venue, I know several high school seniors who will fit in just perfectly (several of whom have some great ideas that are almost ripe...)

So glad you all had a good time last night, and I'm really sorry to have missed it.

Anyone want to tease us with snippets of your favorite conversations?
