I stopped in on the local Linux users group meetup last night. It was great to re-connect with some old friends who were there - some of whom I've not seen in about 10 years. Had some great conversations with some new friends and overall had a great time. Its always funny to walk into those meetings when they're held at a bar, etc. 'cause here are all these guys with their laptops (no, I didn't bring mine) chatting pretty intensely about technology mostly oblivious to the goings on around them.
Its fun to watch people walk up and ask what they're doing, and the responses are usually fairly entertaining and you get to meet even more people. I think the guys really like it when folks ask what Linux is and they get to quickly explain that there's an alternative to Windows that will run on their PC hardware. ;-)
Anyway, good group of guys, lots of ideas and I hope they keep meeting.
