We were discussing it the other day and it seemed to kinda die out...

Like I said before, someone has to take the ball and run with it. I'll help, but I'm not going to be in charge.

Maybe what might be better is to just have a MacRumors Party for the first year. That way we can all meet, have some fun and not have any of the stress associated with setting up a booth and the logistical nightmare that accompanies that.

Food, Drinks, Movies, more Drinks - all sorts of possibilities...

true....I've always favored the idea of a committee rather than an individual to run the show...

I'd be more than happy to help out as well...but I know if it's up to me alone I'll go nuts...he he he ;)

so as for the food, drinks, movies, more drinks...shall we decide where to do it? DC perhaps?!? :D ;)

All I have to say is that Cleo and Macette have to come. I think this is a better idea than to try to pull off a booth so quickly. Hell, we can all meet, and then form a plan for the following year. I am game for anywhere in the south. I cannot travel far from Alabama right now. Hey, what the heck. Everyone come here. Grab a hotel room, and my wife will cook the food. ;)

Um, Cleo and Macette, you two can stay with us.....:p :D ;) :p

Eye, I know you live there, but dude if we are just going to meet, eat, and party, New Orleans is the place to have it!!!!

he he he....I was gonna mention Cleo & Macette for the fun of it...but I wasn't sure how soon they would get tired of the attention...

hmm...a poll might be a good idea...

NYC...DC....San Fran perhaps?

any other suggestions before I get it going?

and strippers... everything is better with strippers..

so ah, cleo's going to be there? :D :p

It would be really nice to join in something like this, but i'd find it a bit difficult to justify the cost of flying to america :(

I'm all up for meeting at Mac Expo Paris though.

Set up a poll. I'd be happy with DC, obviously, and Blakespot is here to, not to mention it isn't to far for Arn to drop by for a weekend.

But New Orleans would be great as well. It all comes down to how many people will go and what is the geographic center of those individuals.

One thing to is try to have two. I lived in New Orleans for a while, and I know that Eye does, and I can tell you that it would be the place for the party. Period. There is no compeititon there. Then later, lets meet up north somewhere. I am going to go to San Fran in 03, so we could do another then.
