What a great time we had! I'm not sure who showed up first, but by the time I made my way to Bennigan's in King of Prussia, Bill Slawski, Bill's friend Eric, and Matt Bailey were already hanging out at the bar. My coworker (and SMG writer) Greg Meyers came in shortly after me. We all hung around a bit and were yakking away until the hostess told us our table was ready.
Soon after we got to our table Chris Winfield showed up, followed by Steve (and I didn't get his partner's name - so Steve drop a comment here!) and his partner introduced themselves and joined us. Finally then Kim & Eric rounded out the group and things kicked into full gear.
Conversation flowed from cookbook ideas (Bill I'm waiting to read that recipe!), to "Stop Hammertime" (Matt this just cracked me up!), to Six Degrees of Separation not being spam but being a charity, to seriously wanting to not use the term LINKBAIT anymore - we all decided we hate the term and want a new one!
We had a lot of great conversations. We even talked about Digg... yoy, Digg! There was talk of SEMPO, and how we're all pulling for and wishing David Temple good luck. Discussion of the London SES conference, and the past Chicago SES along with the fun we all had there and how I did NOT get Mike Grehan drunk, it was the reverse. LOL
We really had a great time, and we're aiming to do it again in March so Chris and Frank can join us this time - and maybe a few more new people. Maybe Bill can dig up another SEO in Deleware - he swears there's only two (him and Eric)!
Keep your eyes to SMG sometime in March we'll announce another meetup!
