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.
