Thanks much to the 20 or so geeks who came out to The House of Orient last night for the Geek Dinner. I snapped a few pics that didn't come out terribly well. Oh, and you'll see a few folks have already pinged the original post with TrackBacks to their write-ups too.

As others have noted, most folks seemed to know fewer than 4 or 5 other people there, so there were a lot of interesting discussions. Several folks suggested that we do this again sometime. I'd be happy to organize another dinner sometime next month.

I enjoyed the dinner, meeting the new folks that showed up, and connecting faces with blogs.

Thanks again for coming!

I haven't been to one in a few months, but the RTP Blogger's lunch that we have every month or so here in RTP is a great thing. It's a wonderful idea that I think more places should think about doing, for reasons you are now familiar with.

Now I really am starting to miss the Bay Area, hopefully I can get back there soon enough.

Since everyone knew only a few people, perhaps an annotated version of one of the pictures would be helpful. Attach some names to those faces...

Great idea --- monthly Geek Meals, meet total strangers, eat decent food, talk, learn, help.

I propose

Locate a Geek Lunch, Dinner or snack in your area

I bought the domain name, Ill donate it to someone who wants to do this...

Maybe next time you guys can wear hats with your names on them.. I can see it now.."I AM JEREMY ZAWODNY" on Jeremy's head. (It'd be kind of hard to miss you though Jeremy- your picture is on the blog)..

Maybe next year (or whenever) you guys can have a bigger one with more people.
