Meetup@roadstead (21st June 2003)

Category : Commentary/meetup20030621.txt

We completed our first ever meet-up at my place (which I mean to call Roadstead) with Kevin Guo, Yezdi, Welly, Mook Sum, Siva, Airani, Eric Pang, George, You Meng, and Hai Hwee turning up.

It's also my first time at a meet-up, and I realised just how useful these sessions are when I learnt so much about digital cameras in just the first fifteen minutes. There were Sony, Nikon, Canon, Fuji, plus a couple more digital cameras I can't remember, turning up on the table in no time. Also Eric's latest-model Sony Ericsson, which Yezdi used to demo Bluetooth connectivity and iSync. If only money is no problem... I've got a long Christmas wish-list of wanna-haves.

We started at 0930 and the last guys (Siva and Airani) left at three-plus. So we did manage to get Siva going on his weblog. At any one time, there were discussions on Flash, web page design, accounting applications on the Mac, video on digital cameras, etc... And this must be the first time there's a PC laptop at a Mac meet-up, which was put to some good use. (Photos coming up.)

So, all in all, it was great fun. Besides Siva, Welly and Hai Hwee, I've never met the others before today. What is it about Mac users that engenders such camaraderie? Got to get my iBook battery replaced (can't go 5 minutes without power). Don't want to miss the next meet-up.
