Anybody interested in meeting your fellow MetaFilistines at local gatherings?

Seems like we're centered around Seattle, Los Angeles, San Francisco, and New York... If there's enough interest in a given area, we could go out for breakfast once a month or something.

heh, someone was just asking me if I was open to doing something like this...

The only downside to something like this (from the people I have met recently) is that talking 'bout metafilter is kind of boring. Getting together because we happen to hang out here, and talking about other things could be kind of fun though.

I know a couple of Toronto area MeFi's are also looking to get together, we just don't know who we are.

Also, from my experience at BBS meets, conversation rarely focuses on the board, you get to know the people behind the posts. Conversations may be similar (Have you seen this site? What a terrible/marvellous/whatever layout!) to what we talk about here, but I doubt people are going to talk about "Oh, and then in this thread userX said this, and then userY said that! LOL!" :-)

It's not about Metafilter. It's about taste communities. People who like one thing are bound to have other things in common. I'd like to meet some L.A. MeFis, if you're willing. (Los Angeles, not Louisiana.)

As a complete aside, MetaFilistines is one of the most humourous group-names for us I've seen yet. I'm officially stealing it for the next time I need to refer to us as a group.

Probably a few times after that one, also.

I, too, wanted to post to this thread solely to applaud "metafilistines".

Ok, I'm game for the LA breakfast thing.

Well, thank you. Came up with it myself, too. (pats own back)
