Previous Entry Share Next Entry

I went to an LJ meetup on Tuesday, and met a bunch of people from LJ here in Seattle. That was fun. I that many of the same people show up again for the next meetup. I have a few pictures I should download and put someplace so the other meetup attendees can get them. :-)

I was slightly annoyed by one thing though. I brought my laptop (as always) and I popped it open to grab a big picture of my main LJ icon because I felt that was much easier to recognize than my name. A few people took the opportunity to then ask if they could use my computer to do some little thing on the Internet. Some people did it in a "I want to show you this neat thing" sort of way, which was interesting. But others more wanted to do things that we fairly personal to them and only of mild interest to everybody else.

On Friday, I had coffee again with seattlejo. That was an enjoyable and relaxing time. I got to hear her talk about her laptop as if it were a person. It's gender was female. :-)

I completely forgot that they had free WiFi there, I think I'll bring in my laptop next time...

Hey, you know what would be cool to do? If we all came in with one of those "HELLO! My Name Is:" stickers on, and it had our most recognised LJ Icon, Username and Real Name on it =)

We do not yet know eachother. I have seen your online presence in a couple of places, and thought that I'd like to know you better, so I friended your journal. :-)
