If you have been following along, you know why I dragged my feet to post these pictures from the desi blogger’s meetup in Manhattan on April 2. So, here they are, in no particular order. It’s quite likely I have missed a few people who were there. Believe me, it’s not an intentional omission.
After puttzing around with my digital camera, I have decided it needs to be retired. It’s an old cantankerous beast that is wholly unreliable; good only to grab a few passing shots for an eBay auction or two. The images I shot at the gathering were on a compact flash card and it was corrupt. I simply couldn’t retrieve anything. I had even told Turbanhead that my attempts to download the images were futile. But thanks to Garrett, photographer and all-round Mac geek, I was able to use a program called PhotoRescue to get something out of nothing.
Someone asked me what I thought of the gathering. It was a lot of fun finally meeting people whose websites I have read and enjoyed a great deal. We’ll just have to try and do this again. The food at the restaurant was good, though the manager there threw a bit of a hissyfit when some seats went unfilled. I suspect the rain (oh, do I know about that rain now) was a deterrent to some who couldn’t make it. I scanned some of the other sites but I didn’t see a whole lot of bandwidth on this meetup. So, do feel free to comment here.
One final note to all – thanks for coming!
