Blogger gathering a resounding success

The blogger meetup at Rooney's Irish Pub was a smashing success. At its height there were at least a hundred people crowded into the place: bloggers, politicians, reporters, blog readers, blog commenters, and almost certainly a few regulars wondering who the heck all these people were and what they were doing there. Congratulations to Gort for making this happen. It was interesting to meet politicians generally only seen in television sound bytes face-to-face, and to see some of the real people behind the blogs. Pictures were taken, secret identities were revealed, and at least one reporter took notes and collected quotes.

I'll keep an eye out for posts and articles referencing this event, and I'll link them here.
