have only browsed the photos randomly so far, but especially like the shout outs to kaycee nicole and actual threads - too funny ! (erm, not that i get the significance of them, outside of 9622) yay, i get a shout out as a random flickr user, heh.

captions would be good tho', i have no idea who anyone is.

Yah, I am always frustrated when there isn't captions saying who's who. Someone add comments to the photo pages, you can!

I thought the 9622 was a shout-out to a thread, which was very novel, but the other ones don't seem to be. I'm confused. I liked the Kaycee Nicole shout-out.

Sorry we missed you too! I brought a webcam and appropriate software in my bag but there wasn't a good opportunity to try and use it. We'll do it another time.

I'd be glad to try joining a meetup by video from home sometime. Can we get a good number of people into a conference together? If so then I humbly propose the Metafilter International Virtual Meetup!

Hey vito90 that is a damned fine haircut, though for all I know you've had it for the past 18 months. I miss you guys! And trivia night!

I'm sorry about missing you. I don't know if the NJ group ever found a hotspot, but I think I was the one with the wireless-enables laptop (someone else had a webcam and software), but I left a little early.

I'll see if I can annotate a bit today. The Gallery install has open comments, so them what knows, give it up!

My dream is that one day, I'll get a shoutout.

also, i think the shoutouts to threads (and a random usernumber) were random, except for 9622.
posted by mwhybark at 11:11 AM on November 7, 2004

It's technically possible that 9622 was a randomly generated thread number, too.

However, the absence of seanyboy from any shoutouts implies conspiracy.

more info. I captioned my pix, too.

9622 was definitely not random - Jerry and O9scar researched it to make sure it was the right number.
posted by mwhybark at 1:29 PM on November 7, 2004

1700 was roughly the number of comments on 9622, which then mistakenly got written down. Everything else was made up.

give it up--we know it was secret code to the mefi cabal. ; >

mwhybark - does this shout out include me or tracicle...? remember, both of us are red-heads so you may want to weigh your answer very carefully. you look very "how you doin'?" and "hey ladies" in that shot hehe
posted by t r a c y at 5:08 PM on November 7, 2004

Funny how you can identify a MeFi get-together just by the sort of people that are there. There's a certain... "look" to them.
posted by five fresh fish at 5:24 PM on November 7, 2004

We did get a tracicle shout in, but you, among others, were sadly neglected, I'm sorry to say. That particular shout out was indeed the "hey ladies" number, and thus the cheese factor. :)
posted by mwhybark at 5:55 PM on November 7, 2004

the cheese looks good on you mwhybark, it's a fun pic :-)

There's a certain... "look" to them

whaddayah mean...? each meet up generally looks like a real mixed bag of types to me, which is why it's so much fun to see the photos.
posted by t r a c y at 6:59 PM on November 7, 2004

Oh, wait!

That WAS for you, girl! We got tracicle in earlier on a MoFi list.
posted by mwhybark at 8:16 PM on November 7, 2004

I'm really bitter you guys didn't give me a shoutout.

Actually, I didn't look at the pictures because I wanted to avoid the crushing disappointment, but I know you didn't and I'm watching you. Right now.

I got nothin.
posted by The God Complex at 12:31 AM on November 8, 2004

I dunno, tracy. When I attended the Vancouver MeFi, I walked into the bar and straight to the MeFi group based solely on a gut instinct that "these guys look like a bunch of webgeeks."

Note that I necessarily include myself in that category.
posted by five fresh fish at 9:24 AM on November 8, 2004

oh yah, i guess you're right... every time i see a pic of a formerly unseen (to me) mefite they still seem quite familiar.

That WAS for you, girl!

yay! thanks guys :-)
posted by t r a c y at 10:02 AM on November 8, 2004

I totally thought that was your shoutout, t r a c y. But you know, us redheads need to stick together, so maybe we can share a shoutout next time. Or have our own meetup. :)
posted by tracicle at 5:25 PM on November 8, 2004

Hey cool! I got a shoutout! Thanks!
