Secret Handshake

I had fun at the Secret Handshake meetup last night. It was great to meet some great young people working in different professions.

I met some Rails Web developers: @marcjean, @gmarik, @ssoroka

Some network security experts: @ron_bowes, @xorrbit

Some designers: @toderash, @timder, @instant_noodles (instantnoodles.ca)

SEO/SM: @thewebgrrl (who I met at the Winnipeg WordPress meetup), @steveosnyder

And some other people, including @TishTishTish, @visuallizard, @4letterw0rd and others.

Notable quotes:

“Vim is better than emacs” – @marcjean
“We could make it into a framework that people can extend and use however they want” – @ssoroka

Best business card: @toderash with Strategic Intuition. An oversized piece of paper, with perforations to tear out the business card (But beware, the small print below the perforation says: “Tear here to limit thinking”). It can stand up, and be used like a table name tag.

I had a little bit of trouble finding the place, I think mostly because I did not have my glasses on, so I could not read their sign, since I did go by the place twice before I finally entered it the third time.

  1. Hey there, Dan!

    Great to see you again.

    I had a bit of troubles finding the place, too, and with it being so cold, I was delightfully surprised at how close I managed to park for free on the street. Yay for free parking!

    What a great turnout! I am a bit shy to introduce myself around to everyone (and then promptly forget all their names) but time will take care of that. Got some great business contacts brewing, it’ll really help augment what I can offer clients, and is pretty exciting to even just sit and contemplate.

    I love freelancing…

    TTFN!
