I have to admit, I was a bit nervous as I walked up to Quality Social. My first (on-line) encounter with fellow science blogger Tideliar was a little intimidating.
I walked in and asked the hostess where the ‘SfNBanter’ party was and she pointed me to the left by the bar. I seen Doc_Becca first and I recognized Tideliar right way. His hair was the give-away and he looks better without the shades…
We chatted for a few minutes about blogging and they passed on some great advice about grad school in general. As the rest of the bloggers/tweeters came in, the party shaped up quite nicely. There was also a fashion show running at the same time–random but entertaining. I am very happy I went to this event. It was great to SEE the other bloggers (both new and established) and it seemed like everyone had a good time. I met some new friends and hopefully we can stay in touch. I’d say it was a great networking experience. Looking forward to SfN11Banter!
