A good evening catching up.

Yesterday I managed to have dinner with bjarvis and then a long, late chat with colinmac. I haven't seen bjarvis since I met him at a technical conference and it was fun to sync up again after so many years of LJ sharing. On the other hand I grew up, er, well I grew older in the same alt-crowd circle as colinmac, and it's been nearly 10 years since I've talked with him. That was a great conversation ended only by the reality of an impending morning.

It's really crazy how so many of us work our ways through similar issues on different part of the planet, in our own different way. It really was a neat conversation that rolled over an incredible amount of ground, and how each of us decides what to value and where to focus. These are the best kind of meetings, the kind I love to have.
