Word of the day: concatenation.
Question of the day: What do you get from an in-person meetup that you don’t get online?
Between us, lil and I have been to at least fifteen different meetups and met some larger number of hubskiers. Here are a couple of answers.
bootz: I get rapid fire answers to my questions, and don’t have to wait for them to log back in.
lil: real-time giggles.
bootz and lil: the concatenation of persons and place—place, importantly, not being our living rooms or by the computer. There is some new, third thing when you’re at a place that you don’t get online. Plus the intentionality of negotiating a location. It implies a higher level of commitment than merely circle-dotting.
