That's not Keanu Reeves. That's a lifesize replica of the mini-iLeader.



"In science it often happens that scientists say, 'You know that's a really good argument; my position is mistaken,' and then they would actually change their minds and you never hear that old view from them again. They really do it. It doesn't happen as often as it should, because scientists are human and change is sometimes painful. But it happens every day. I cannot recall the last time something like that happened in politics or religion." (1987) -- Carl Sagan

I remember the meetup(s) though I didn't attend.

I also remember seeing the mini-Leader at the booth

MWSF was always fun for me, and it made me laugh to see all 'I was in an out in 10min' and 'there was a MW??' posts.

I miss MWSF.

Matrix 4 will be on my Must See list.

In the couple years I worked at Casady & Greene, I got so many swag t-shirts from various vendors that I didn’t buy any for fifteen years. Good times…

Damn, it was a sad day when C&G said good-bye.

There were always great people at their booth, and I got a bit of swag from them as well.

But yes on swag T-shirts! I'm wearing a workstrop/softchaos T-shirt now.

I don't know if any of the companies that gave them out are around now.

Well, c|net.

As delicious as dinner was, drinks and socializing after was even more fun.

Wasn’t it City Lights (or near to) where we went for adult beverages? That martini Larry bought me was tasty!

I don’t recall the name of the venue, just that we all had a great time together.

Glad to hear dmann is doing well — I miss her, too. Not a Facebook user, but I recently encountered that nick on Reddit and wondered if it was her...
