If anyone wants to meet up for coffee this coming Saturday Nov 10th, I'll be at La Boulange at the corner of High Street and University Ave (151 University Ave) in Palo Alto at 10:00am.

I'll wear a blue Notre Dame baseball cap with "ND" on the front.

    I gave up coffee a couple of months ago. This may be a special occasion, though. I am totally up for a photo!

    I had a really nice time today. It was fun to meet everyone who showed up. A very nice group of people. I should have moved down to the other end of the table to talk to Leo and PK. Hopefully we can do that again sometime.

    Got a copy of the book AND a bumper sticker. WOOOO HOOOO!

    It was a fun meeting! I got to meet justme. As expected, he was a smart, reasonable, and interesting person! We should have more of this.

    Thanks Patrick for organizing the coffee hour.

    Awesome meeting, we just could not stop talking.

    I'm disappointed (?) though that no realtors showed up to harass us. Except maybe that lady with the macbook that showed up towards the end (not your wife pkennedy, I mean at the other end of the table :)). She looked the part and could have been a NAR spy :)

    But were there only 8 pairs of feet, I thought there were 9 of us??

    Are you testing for equality or identity? Or does it even matter? :-)

    [Geek Joke Alert]. I wanted to test for equality rather than "assign" blame.

    Shrekgrinch, you shoulda' been there.

    Count me in for that! I might bring a copy of my bank statement, showing how much cash I have saved renting, and tell the Realtor "you're not going to get my money."

    BTW, thanks to justme for pointing out that Patrick.net is now the second Google result for "cannibal anarchy":

    http://www.google.com/search?sourceid=navclient&hl=en&q=cannibal+anarchy

    It makes me proud. Sniff.

    I was trying to find out where the whole Cannibal Anarchy meme came from. I thought it may have been from a movie or something, but nobody seemed to know.

    Yeah, I had a good time also. I would have liked to have stayed longer. Conversation was pretty lively for a group of people who just met. I was expecting at least a few awkward attempts at small talk.

    It is always nice to have a reason to come back.

    Nah, Patrick must have been using a soft-lens. The shoes were not that clean.

    At least one person rode a bike there, and some of the others were city dwellers.

    I'm the bike rider (anywhere I can possibly go by bike or train, I do) and my shoes are the brown loafers on the left.

    Same place in a month? My only complaint is that that cafe is very noisy and it can be hard to hear.

    I drove to get there, but my usual commute to work is by foot.

    Yeah, it was hard to hear what was going on at the other end of the table.

    I would be up for meeting again, but with the holidays coming up I might find it difficult to find the time until after the new year. If you set another meeting up again before then I will try to make it.

    I think there is a library near there that might have a little conference room we can use. I know the Belmont library has conference rooms. And it has a Starbucks and a bagel place across the street.

    We don't have to be mean. We can just share ideas with each other. Don't even have to include them in that lively conversation.
