I can bring my laptop, fire up Skype, and we can conversate with the Brits ;)

We need to coordinate this, when is the October get together?

Too funny. In my previous post, I had actually typed a second paragraph suggesting a NC meetup (but I deleted it because I promised my family I would stop organizing conferences and meetups and such). So I’m in. And Oct 10 would work just fine, unless we need something earlier before you head for Florida.

Added the date to my calendar – as the date approaches, let’s see who wants to meetup.

Re: Who's that lurking?

Is the Textpattern meeting in the UK still set for Oct 10?

If we had a North Carolina meeting on the same day (Raleigh?) – who would show? Meet ups are part of the energy of other open source projects – I hope we can make a Textpattern meeting happen.

Cool. How about it nearby Textpattern users? Raleigh NC October 10 (venue TBD). Meet for a few hours and exchange ideas. Hopefully Skype for at least a few minutes with the UK Textpattern meeting.

Would love to participate (though will have to juggle with family responsibilities). We could do it at the RTP Frontier free coworking/meeting space. See http://www.rtp.org/about-us/the-frontier/drop-space/. Or someplace that serves coffee, lunch or beer.

Coffee, lunch AND beer could work too. That RTP space looks great. Lets see how many humans we can scare up and then figure the space out from there.

Re: Who's that lurking?

Get in! This’d be awesome. We’ll make sure we have the Wi-Fi password and find some suitable daytime overlap between BST and, uhhhh, EDT?

Re: Who's that lurking?

The last Textpattern meetup I attended was 2011 in London. Good times. Great beer!

Here’s my blog post from that trip across the pond:

Re: Who's that lurking?

btw, if anybody would like to write a guest textpattern.com article advertising the upcoming meet, please feel free to nominate yourself and send one to me.

There’ll be a post-meeting post too. I could write that, or someone else could. Or we could get different perspectives from different people and serialise the pieces.

The Yanks met on the tattered NC coastline, defiance drove them. They each brought coolers, the lights were still out for a good portion of the East Coast.

Talk of Textpattern centered around using the software to post pictures and write about what they witnessed on their trek east. Mostly they talked about how insignificant we humans were, how we give such importance to ourselves and our first world problems. Joaquin had shown everyone that we were like the grains of sand filling our shoes, it was all about perspective.

The afternoon flew by quickly as did all the beverages in the coolers. A found farewell was said, and a future meetup was talked about, one where we had electricity and could access the Google.
