It was a fun evening. Nice venue. Good food. Bright people. It was nice chatting with an old friend (since 1996 days) and meeting a few new people.
I think it’s safe to say that by number 4 we’ve created a bit of an institution in the Cape Town geek world. The distributed (chaotic) GeekDinner planning model works well, with the help of a few dedicated people. Thanks to everybody that helped organise and support this one. At the end of the night somebody asked about the origins of the GeekDinner and it was nice to have a laugh about how we forked from the 27 Dinner scene. By the Geeks for the Geeks.
On a bit of a sad note, I was disappointed by the number of people who put their names on the wiki but could not make it to the dinner.. but, I guess this is Cape Town.
Planning for the next event should start soon. It seems we already have a name for #5: Eccentric Eggplant. Join the planning mailing list.
See you at the next one.
ps. To the 10 people who won the green frog pirate shirts, Arrr! Frogspeed! (-:
