SUPEREMPOWERED GET-TOGETHER

I had the pleasure of lunch today with Lexington Green and Dave Schuler.

While Dave and I had gotten together on a prior occasion, Lex was kind enough to play host and it was a treat meeting him and his lovely family. It was very pleasant to while away a Sunday afternoon, discussing books, geopolitics, society and of course, blogging, over a few beers with two such interesting interlocutors. Each are easily as articulate and well-read F2F as their online personas might lead you to believe.

As we left, Dave and I joked that it might be good sometime to put together an informal Chicago area blog con. Given the nothing but positive experience I've had interacting with other bloggers, online or off, it's something to think about.

UPDATE:

I see we're not the only bloggers getting together. :O)

Tis only a shame that Curzon and YH are in Japan and I in Germany. We have to organize a bigger conference one of these days. I recommend somewhere like Turkey, Damascus etc.
 
"Damascus "

"Right-Wing U.S. Bloggers are Spies, Syria Announced today.... "

Just kidding. :o) No, a large gathering someday would be fantastic !
 
Air travel to Phuket or Istanbul or Falujah is too damned expensive and inconvenient for me.

It has to be somewhere easy to get to, and kid-friendly, like my living room.
 
Superimpowered my ass...

All you do is post links and shit...

your blog is really dumb
 
Opinions vary, Claymore.

Feel free not to read it, if you don't like it. 60 million blogs out there, you don't have to hang around here.
 
Claymore's comment, and any others like it, should be deleted rather than responded to.
 
Hi Lex,

I don't get them very often; I suppose if I was getting about 1000 hits a day I'd have more of a problem with trolls and would need to consider that.

I did get hate email in pre-blogging days from readers of H-Diplo - fairly vicious stuff.
