He probably means it to be funny.

Hey! That was a lot of fun!

confidential to Greg_Ace: the explanation wasn't anticlimactic at all.

Thanks Ace!!!

So much fuckin fun last night!

Mine are up as well, in two sets:

- General meetup pictures
- Fedora portraits

Greg_Ace, be sure to add your photos to the ten page (up in the upper right section of the Portland page).

There were a looot of new faces last night, so there's a few gaps in my memory of who was who. Leave a comment on any of the ??? photos if you can ID the person that I can't, please.

Are those sets supposed to be private, cortex?

The plate of beans was the star of the meetup, huh?
posted by iconomy at 3:00 PM on July 19, 2009

I totally forgot to un-private them. Fixed now, sorry!

The admin page has "fag hotspots"?

Nice pics.

I wish I had been there to hear mathowie's talk about cash gifting.

I dunno, it looks more like he's drunkenly crooning Three Times a Lady.

They look great! Thanks!

I'm a horrible person I suppose because I don't like Flickr.

Here's my Picasa Web Album

Here's a collection of video clips and photos I took: MeFi10. Had a great time, thanks everyone!

Let's hope Fnord pipes up eventually as well. I know he took some nice pics, but he may not be able to post them until he gets home.

That's not a fedora!

Man, I really want to know the identity of the guy who wouldn't give either his real name or his username. All he'd tell us was Ioa (apparently, a Tahitian word that means "to name" or something like that). He's the one in this picture.
posted by solipsophistocracy at 9:56 PM on July 19, 2009

No, this is the mystery guy.
posted by gingerbeer at 10:48 PM on July 19, 2009

Mysterious Ioa is the guy in both of those photos. I took the bus and train with him back towards Beaverton, and, yeah, he is a really nice guy; it's too bad we don't actually know who he is. I talked about a five-minute investigation I did over in Ten, but the only thing I could come up with would require the existence of multidimensional travel, so unless he makes a comment, I guess we'll never know.

Also, pb. Dude. That video is awesome. I seriously got choked up a little bit.
posted by maqsarian at 11:38 PM on July 19, 2009

> That video is awesome.

Yeah, it gave me a real sense of the meetup. Thanks for posting it!
posted by languagehat at 9:07 AM on July 20, 2009

Loved the video so much. I think my favorite part is one tiny bit shot in the kitchen and all you can see are a bunch of mefites all talking and waving their hands. Captures the meetup beautifully.
posted by rtha at 9:35 AM on July 20, 2009

Ahhh amazing video. Like moving.
posted by Lutoslawski at 9:50 AM on July 20, 2009

languagehat: Yeah, it gave me a real sense of the meetup.

I'm chiming in to confirm that. It was a wonderful time. I just wish I could've talked more to everybody. My psyche was bouncing with joy the whole time.
posted by Kattullus at 9:58 AM on July 20, 2009

You people and your fun-having. God damn my job. God damn it right to hell.
posted by dersins at 12:20 PM on July 20, 2009

Agreed, dersins. You were much and loudly toasted so I hope your ears burned all night.
posted by rtha at 12:22 PM on July 20, 2009

Also I hired a guy to track you down and put out cigarettes on your earlobes, so that hopefully contributed.

I just finished going through EVERY SINGLE GODDAMN PHOTO so far and I REGRET NOTHING.

I wish I could've been at every single 10th anniversary meetup.

Kattullus: I just finished going through EVERY SINGLE GODDAMN PHOTO

Wholehearted commitment, or OCD?
posted by Greg_Ace at 1:52 PM on July 21, 2009

Well... I started, and then I didn't stop until I reached the end. I enjoyed it. I think it may have been voluntary OCD.
