After work today I met up with John and headed over to 1 Alexander to join in the SuperHappyDevHouse hijinx. Most were there to brainstorm and come up with fun, neat little ways to geek, hack and play with the weebernet but some are here simply to eat, drink, and be geeky – ourselves included.
Introductions were made and topics were rattled off, it’s a test-tube environment with creative juices flowing like the beer from the Keg. I’ve decided that I’m done for work for the day so the blogging shall begin. I’m taking camera phone pics of the event and they’re all posted on my Flickr tag: shdh. There’s also a live UStream that you can watch below. Check back here for updates and photos throughout the evening.
We have discovered that it takes 4 people to light a BBQ, and it will take 4 bratwursts an eon to cook, especially when you haven’t had lunch yet and you already have a beer in ‘ya.
Work is done for the day, focusing on the live blog. Most people are split up into groups, discussing very productive things, I however have been sent downstairs to get John’s sunglasses. Oh well, time to schmooze!
Boris‘ kielbasa is very tasty – and huge! I’ve been wandering around with Duane‘s camera for a little while, snapping pics and trying to handle it’s hugeness (that’s the camera lens, not the kielbasa). I’ve been getting some flack for not promoting John’s employment abilities so here’s a shout out – if you’re in need of a website, audio, radio, av, mac, drupal, kinda guy, hit up his site for more information and please contribute to making us a dual income household.
Dave has arrived! It’s the first time John and I have seen him since the “loss” of the season. We’re talking Ottawa/Buffalo and also looking ahead to next season. We’re also having some great chats with John Biehler and Richard Eriksson.
People are leaving and the crowds are thinning. Just spent some quality time chatting to Ivan and talking about more geekery. I think John and I will be leaving soon, we’re out of beer… that’s the tell-tale sign…
