where the geeks are

1) Here! As you may have noticed, much like the city itself, the Atlanta Metroblog has seen a sudden and welcome population increase. In addition to Karsh the One-Named, Gregor the Baseball Chronicler, and Will the Poet, whom I failed to welcome properly earlier, say hi to Paul, Kent, Lisa, and Nathan. Hopefully all these new people will be . . .

2) At the next Metroblog meetup, and admittedly I have no damn idea when that is. Because I suck. Lori? I hope it’s not this coming Wednesday [UPDATE: Thursday, 7ish, the Highlander (10th and Monroe near Midtown Art Cinema)], since everyone will be . . .

3) At the Office Space screening, appropriately enough, at Technology Square. (Thanks to Susan of Midtown Life for posting the link.) Get there early, folks. You don’t want to have to come between a whole bunch of Techies, or wannabe Techies, and their Ron Livingston/Stephen Root love. But there will be some geeks not watching a movie, but . . .

4) At the Loop on Chamblee-Tucker Road very near Spaghetti Junction, to play board games. Second Wednesday of every month. Be there and be square. Quite square.

    I feel like a jackass for having yet to attend a Metroblog meetup. Then again, I am, actually, a total jackass anyway, so maybe everything is a-okay.

    Um… so when bloggers meetup is there a lot of talk about the blog?

    Do they blog while meeting?

    Or meet and then blog?

    And when, if ever, is it cool to blog ABOUT the meetup?

    I’m sooooooo there on Wednesday – I hope the weather cooperates!

    As I’m aware, the next blog get-together is this Thursday, at the Highlander. But I’ll let Lori post more details – it’s her gig.

    Thanks for the welcome. I’ll do my best to make it on Wednesday.

    Yes, Thursday at the Highlander. 7ish. Discussions are centered around “yes, I’ll have another” and “dude, when are you going to update?”

    Yeah but this Thursday at 7 is also comedy from Whole World Theatre in Piedmont Park.

    Thanks Jessica and howdy right back at you!

    It figures as soon as I have been welcomed into the fold I have started brain farting on ATL material. Look for a proper post soon, once I can get dig up a story. Game on!
