We had a lovely gathering last weekend.
(Note that I took no notes. Infer from that what you will.)
There were a few people I was hoping to meet that couldn’t make it, but there’s always next time.
I’ve met close to a dozen fellow bloggers or commenters or fellow-travelers from these endeavors. I think the age range of the people I’ve met is 19-50. Some were former leftists others were rightists others were libertarians and others were (and still are) traditionalists. I’ve had a good time with everyone.
People generally assume that your online persona is a fake or contrived or exaggerated persona. It’s fun to meet a bunch of people for whom the opposite is true. The real person is the person online – we all put up various fronts in our real lives.
