Cool Kids Club Card

Posted on April 15, 2008 @ 19:16 journal

So at lunch I decided to check my email, and I got one from Justice with a subject that read....

"Did you get one of these? Fwd: ALT.NET Seattle!"

It was a forward from David Laribee, one of the organizers of ALT.NET, that was sent out to all registered attendees. As I continued to read it said:

"We are *FULL* and there are, I'm sorry to say, no "plus ones" at this point."

My reaction was... GULP, my wife is going to kick my ***!

Then a magical thing happened... I saw another email in my inbox... the subject read "ALT.NET Seattle!" and it was from Mr. David Laribee himself!

I'm in, I'll see you cool kids this weekend in Seattle! If you're thinking about crashing the party, I would suggest that you get in touch with one of the organizers instead of pulling a mO... *sigh*

The email in it's entirety, for all the curious!

Hi all,
We're just about ready to launch into ALT.NET Open Spaces, Seattle. A few housekeeping notes:

  • The space opens on Friday, 4/18 from 6pm to 8pm. Saturday we'll meet for sessions between 10am and 6pm. We'll wrap up on Sunday from 10am to 2pm.
  • There is no shuttle service between the hotel (Marriott Town Center) and DigiPen (event location). Please arrange or offer rides if you can. It's Bring Your Own Ride, so be aware.
  • Event details (location, maps, times) are always available at 
  • We are *FULL* and there are, I'm sorry to say, no "plus ones" at this point. We'll be doing a loose registration at the door and you have to be registered (you are if you're getting this message) to participate.

If you have any questions, please send me email. I'll do my best to answer promptly.
Looking forward to an exciting and productive meet-up!
