    I was wondering when and where Geekfest 2003 will be. I think it was in New Orleans last year. It'd be nice to put together a major get-together, where as many people possible can meet and talk in person.

    Maybe we could all go to arn's house or something!

    I'm not sure when geekfest traditionally is, but it never hurts to plan ahead.

    Hmm... a bit too far away for me... Maybe we could have regional geekfests... One for the Eastern US, one for the Southern US, one for the Mid US, and one for the West Coast... We can then use Apple's videoconferencing software built into iChat, whenever it comes out...

    Well, it seems that DC is going to be the place this year for Geekfest like Eye said. We had another thread on this earlier - maybe we'll have to make it a sticky so people know.

    If you want a winter geekfest, I know a place where you can go and stay on the beach with nice weather. It's close to Mexico, so you can go across the border for some fun in the clubs during the nights. It's called South Padre Island. I'm afraid it's not very computer friendly (salt water and the moisture from the sea won't greet your aluminum PowerBook with much enthusiasm, but the TiBook is resistant to corrosin for up to 3 years under sea water!)

    You can come down to the Rio Grande Valley (passports not required- it's in the US) and enjoy some fun in the sun for geekfest 2004, or whenever you want to!

    I've definately been around people who want to sell you stuff for too long...

    I just hope I'll be able to attend a geekfest some day. It's kinda like my desire to visit a MacWorld, yet not as great...

    That sounds pretty interesting, it'll be closer to where I'll hopefully be living then, much more convienent than DC.[​IMG]

    I'd go. I'm about an hour north of Houston.
