Alcohol Wants to be Free

by on April 28, 2006 · 8 comments

As expected, last night’s TLF happy hour was a tremendous success. Dubbed Alcohol Liberation Front, it saw the largest convergence of TLF bloggers ever in a single location. Not only that, but the event saw a record number of TLF readers attending to join in convivial, spirited conversation – not to mention a teeming crowd of TLF-oblivious revelers. Needless to say, there was plenty of noise and plenty of jostling to get to the almost-packed bar.

And it’s no wonder. What an opportunity! – to gather and talk about all the stuff that we usually write about!

I, for one, am still dizzy from the excitement generated by the event, or perhaps that’s “queasy.” No matter. I’m looking forward with intense trepidation to the next Alcohol Liberation Front event. Hearty thanks to Tim Lee for organizing and for coming up with the zinger quote of the night: “Another gin and tonic for my analog hole.”

(WTF?)

    How many people showed up? Did the IPCentral crew show up as well? I’d love to get together a few people and walk up to James DeLong and say “ho ho! It is I, your archnemesis the eeeeeevvvvvvil IP anarchist!”

    Well, let’s just say that record numbers of people showed up – keeping in mind that this was the first one . . . .

    Maybe best to say just “numbers of people showed up.”

    The worst part is that we really didn’t have anything new or clever to say to one another. All of our random thoughts are on the blog, it seems.

    Hey guys, sorry I missed it. Unfortunately, I was on the plane back to CA just as the shindig started to go down.

    Next time… :)

    It was great to meet many of you though, at the event (and my long recap of the event will be going up on Techdirt shortly…).
