Post meetup[edit]

  • Nice to have met you all! Dominick (TALK) 23:00, 14 January 2006 (UTC)
Me, too!!! εγκυκλοπαίδεια* 23:32, 14 January 2006 (UTC)
Me, three!!! Laura Pinto 01:59, 15 January 2006 (UTC)
Agreed - it was well worth the drive from Orlando Trödel•talk 20:25, 16 January 2006 (UTC)
  • Sorry I couldn't make it... I thought about it, but ultimately decided against the nearly four hour drive each way to get there from Boca Raton. *Dan T.* 02:22, 15 January 2006 (UTC)
  • D'oh, I forgot about it... tregoweth 06:04, 15 January 2006 (UTC)
  • Damnit. I was in the edit suite anyway, but still... damnit. :-{ --Baylink 02:24, 16 January 2006 (UTC)
  • Thanks to Mark for posting these pictures - can't wait until the next meetup. Trödeltalk 04:14, 29 January 2006 (UTC)
Sorry about my shouting friend at Panera today. She knew I wrote for Wikipedia and we noticed the meet-up going on, and then as we were leaving you passed by and I noted it to her. She, to take revenge for my shouting at a professor of hers a couple weeks ago to embarass her, decided to put me on the spot by calling yours and then ducking away. She found it funny, but I felt an explanation desirable.
Yours,

Dude, it was very very funny as a matter of fact. You should have popped in for the meetup. Anyway the woman I was walking with was a reporter for the New York Times and now I'm sure she thinks that I'm much more of a celebrity than I actually am. This was the first time anyone ever randomly recognized me on the street.--Jimbo Wales 08:48, 15 January 2006 (UTC)
Ha! Now that'll be a funny postscript to the anecdote — I'll have to search the Times for that article. If it gets you good press, you can always remember me the next time an ArbCom seat opens up. ;) In any case, it was good almost meeting you. Wally 08:58, 15 January 2006 (UTC)
