In my experience it’s just like any social occasion, except that what we all have in common is not that we work at the same place, or all all related to somebody getting married, but are all posting on the same message boards.
So there’s a bit of common ground (lively discussion of interesting topics) and a common attitude thing (we’re smarter than most because we found our way there) but the rest is just chatting and letting the afternoon wander along.
Mind you we all must be a little socially inhibited, otherwise we’d be outside playing instead of sitting over a computer all day.
So, I actually thought if things got a little strained, we could all walk down to the Internet cafe just down the road, and sit at different desks and converse the way we feel most comfortable, over the net.
Imagine what it would be like for the other customers. As we all tap away, every now and then when someone made a good point half of the room busts out laughing, or all groan in unison at a truly bad joke. Hehehehe, what a picture.
And speaking of picutres, those photos are not geeky, thank you very much. They are nerdy. Get it? Got the difference?
Those damn digital cameras! Making me look geeky when I’m nerdy through and through.
Don’t start on me buddy. I might ferment a long Pit rant on the subject…
