Kim (“All of my faults are stress-related”), spotted me before I spotted her and a half dozen other geobloggers at the Thirsty Bear Brewpub last night, just a block down the street from the Moscone Center. The place was wall-to-wall geo-types with a just a few of the local business-suite types looking out of place.
Randy Showstack, senior writer for AGU’s EOS newspaper, had stopped by earlier, and together we were pushing through the crowd trying to figure out which bunch of jeans and hiking boot-clad fashionistas was our group.
Seven of us joined up last night– a half dozen others had commitments elsewhere – and after a couple minutes of introductions both of names and our blogs, we were a gathering of old friends who anyone would think meet up annually at the conference.
