Geeky fun

This evening I am participating in an informal tech meetup here at the Centre for Digital Media in Vancouver. We each take turns getting up and talking about the projects we’ve been working on, and getting feedback from each other.

There is something so wonderful about the energy in the room of people talking about something they love, to other people who really appreciate the hard work and design decisions that go into a project.

This all feels kind of the opposite of a corporate sales presentation (at least the ones I’ve seen). It’s fine if things go wrong, if the demo crashes and you need to restart. That’s all part of the realness of it.

It would be nice if more of the interactions in life between people were infused that same sense of shared love and appreciation.
