That 'how did you meet' meme...
Well, THIS tutned into a major project. I'm glad I did this in emacs and pasted it in, gah.

Ok, remember, I *SUCK* when it comes to names - especially matching up names and faced in my memory. Add to that my legendary lack of time sense and you can see why this wasn't easy for me to do, and why it may not be wholly accurate. Please don't take offense if we have met and I said that we haven't or something - just follow up and remind me. Since I very, very rarely manage to catch someone's name until we've met a few times, and I also have to run it through the chain of LJ handle to real name or possibly LJ handle - name listed on LJ - full name - nickname/handle I know you by, it is asking for me to screw up.

_nicolai_BOFH - I don't think we've ever met in person.
adv_dp_fanDLW - first met in person at NekoCon several years ago.
aeireThe wonderful creator of Queen of Wands. We haven't met in person yet, just online in LJ, XForums, eBay, etc.
agthorrUm, I'm not sure.
arconiusWe first met in person at an early Anime Expo I believe. But we first knew of each other in anime fanfic circles, since he's the 2nd person to post such online.
arcticelfI met him through jehanna.
ardanielI think we actually saw each other at AX a few years ago, but I really met her in MA through Gweep social gatherings.
asdfjlkI think we met at a Gweep gathering.
ash_3We first met at a con, AX perhaps?
atarikeikoNever met, just someone who's LJ I like to read because she seems cool.
audiogeekWe first met a while back.
autumnesquirrelUm, we met what, in 98 or 99? I think it was through frozencapybara
azurelunaticWe've never met, just another cool LJ.
blackcoatI don't think we've met, have we? He's an Eyrie fan and a friend of impykins - so he must be an ok guy. ;-)
blarglefiendBOFH - I don't think we've met in person.
bluegargantuaWe met at WPI around 1992 or 1993 I think. He was my housemate for a year.
bouncingleafWe met through Gweep social gatherings a few years ago since she worked with several people I know.
brainiac69We met back around 1991 at WPI, via z_gryphon I think.
broestlsI think we first met a couple of years ago, but I don't remember exaclty where or how - other than anime related.

cbeveridgeWe first met a few years ago at an AnimeOnDVD.com gathering.

iajomaaThe evil anti-kviri
impykinsWe will meet in person for the first time in a couple of weeks. She's an Eyrie fan, and a friend of several of my friends. But somehow we'd managed not to communicate directly until a few weeks ago. But I'm *very* happy that we finally have.
invader_haywireHaywire is, I believe, the person I've known longest out of everyone here. I believe we met at the pre-frosh 'check out the campus' weekend at WPI. I was reading either one of the Robotech Art books or one of the Robotech RPG books and he noticed and we chatted. Mostly about how you could build a working Valkyrie. Then I didn't really see him all freshmen year, only to share an apartment with him the next two years.
iwascaiteWe've never met.
janscottfrazierWe've seen each other many times at anime cons over the years.
jehannaWhen did I first meet you? It was dinner at the Chinees place on Gold Star that is long since gone, wasn't it? You had recently started dating kviri and I think I was visiting from CA.
jhimWe went to WPI together, he was a year or two behind me.
mindwaysI think we first met through kviri around 1998 or 1999, right? Then we worked together at Event Zero.
jwzWhile I doubt he'd ever remember, we exchanged emails briefly back in 1996 when he was with Netscape and I was with Livingston. But we've never met.
kazmatI keep confusing this LJ handle with keshwyn... Anyway, when did we meet, back at WPI I suppose?
keshwynI met her through kviri I believe at about the same time I met mindways
kilareiA cool person from XForums, we've never met.
kirikayumuraI think I may have seen her as a guest at a con, but I don't think we've really met.

mizarchivistI don't believe we've met yet.
murph_grrlOh, hmm, we met in Worcester before I left for CA. So it must've been 1993/1994 I'd say, through GweepCo
nilasaeBOFH - I don't believe we've met.
ninjaratYou know, I don't remember when we first met, or how. It was before I moved to CA, I'm pretty sure. We know a number of the same people.
norikos_authorBOFH - we haven't met.
nouBOFH - Pretty sure we haven't met.
palegreyminionWe met at WPI in 1991, IIRC.
pawoHe's one of the first people I talked to at WPI. I signed up for my Encore account right away and hit the terminals, but was kind of lost. The guy next to me looked like he knew what he was doing, and I thought he was an upperclassman. So I bugged him - it was pawo and it turned out he was a frosh too. But he did know what he was doing - at least more than I did.
pdelahantyWe met back at WPI in the mid-90s.
scixualWe've never met.

I wouldn't call it met.

I sat on a panel with you at AnAm '94 or '95. That's about the extent I've ever seen you. I enjoy some of UF, mostly Gryph's work. UF-EX-Ronin and a couple of the Hopelessly Lost stories. Why do you think my username is "Mackie S"? ;]
zonereyrie From: zonereyrie Date: August 29th, 2003 02:52 pm (UTC) (Direct Link)
Well, I know you primarily from alt.fan.bgcrisis. ;-)
mackys From: mackys Date: August 29th, 2003 03:00 pm (UTC) (Direct Link)

Point!

I've been around there for a while, haven't I?

Excuse me, I need to go get depressed about how old I am now. ;D
krellis From: krellis Date: August 29th, 2003 03:13 pm (UTC) (Direct Link)
I don't know that we've ever actually met... mutual acquaintances would be solipsistnation, and possibly other random WPI and Gweep people. I think I interviewed several people who know you, too... didn't need enough staff to hire any of them, unfortunately. Oh, and you applied for my old job at WPI, too, unless I'm losing my mind, which is wholly possible.
zonereyrie From: zonereyrie Date: August 29th, 2003 03:14 pm (UTC) (Direct Link)
Was that the web position or the PC shop position?
krellis From: krellis Date: August 29th, 2003 03:16 pm (UTC) (Direct Link)
Web.
krellis From: krellis Date: August 29th, 2003 03:16 pm (UTC) (Direct Link)
Oh, yeah, and I also hang out in various TiVo circles that you tend to be involved in as well.
From: jehanna Date: August 29th, 2003 03:21 pm (UTC) (Direct Link)
I'm pretty sure you're right about the approximate time and place where we met. I don't recall any details either, just that it would have been during a visit of yours from CA because I was dating kviri at the time.
riki_hime From: riki_hime Date: August 29th, 2003 03:30 pm (UTC) (Direct Link)
Hrm I was at AX in 99 but I knew no one, and wasn't part of AOD at the time. I was Lina inverse and was stupid enough to go in the masqurade :)

I think the first time I met you was at Otakon 2000, the gathering? I know for sure I saw you at the panel :)

zonereyrie From: zonereyrie Date: August 29th, 2003 03:32 pm (UTC) (Direct Link)
Ok, it was probably Otakon and not AX. Too many cons, they blur.
sinapus From: sinapus Date: August 29th, 2003 04:00 pm (UTC) (Direct Link)
Nope, we haven't met in RL, Zoner. :)
zonereyrie From: zonereyrie Date: August 29th, 2003 04:09 pm (UTC) (Direct Link)
OK, let me uncross these wires...
wedgex From: wedgex Date: August 29th, 2003 05:36 pm (UTC) (Direct Link)
Haven't met, actually. Was dragged into lj by Ard and just did the 'oh, just add a bunch of people' thing and kind of left it. You were nice enough to add me, though, which is all good.

I'm Wedge from the Eyrie forums, on the very small chance you didn't know that already. We've geeked out in aviation threads over there from time to time. :)
cykotek From: cykotek Date: August 29th, 2003 06:19 pm (UTC) (Direct Link)
Technically, the first time we met was you waiting in the Wedge to offload some anime after an SFS meeting. Then, running into each other on a semi-random basis.
robotech_master From: robotech_master Date: August 29th, 2003 06:58 pm (UTC) (Direct Link)
We met at an Akon in Dallas, IIRC. Bruce Campbell was one of the guests, and I was standing in line getting his autograph and a photo during the fanfic panel. All things considered, I kind of wish I'd hit the panel instead, now...
mechaman From: mechaman Date: August 29th, 2003 07:02 pm (UTC) (Direct Link)

Katsucon Ichi

You and Rat came down then, and I came with Phil.
tarzxf From: tarzxf Date: August 29th, 2003 09:12 pm (UTC) (Direct Link)
We (ardaniel and I) first met you at AX 2001 in Long Beach. Not much of a "met" as much as a "witnessed"...
ardaniel From: ardaniel Date: August 29th, 2003 09:24 pm (UTC) (Direct Link)
...although I'm also fairly sure that I've seen you far, far prior to that. Like, '88ish. But since I was 12 at the time, my memory is very poor. I just remember some really huge guy at WPI going by your original legal name...
(Deleted comment)
elisteran From: elisteran Date: September 15th, 2003 12:13 am (UTC) (Direct Link)
Nope, we've never met.
