Geeks vs Nerds


On Friday evening, having hijacked a friend's do (he had the flu), and to avoid any transition on my part, I brought together (in The Lamb) two of the least disparate groups of people imaginable: Computer Scientists and Internet Friends.

The good thing about drinking with bloggers is that one gets a reminder before the do, "I'm going out to have a blogmeet now...with Martin and Looby", a recap of what was said, "(conversation in a pub)" and a post-evening analysis, "Martin came with this group of computer people from UCL, who talked in this distanced ironic sort of way, as though they're commentating on another conversation they could be having."
