meetings the geeks

A few months ago I had a meeting in Cape Town to collaborate with some Geeks about using facebook for a few client promotions.

We arranged to meet at a small coffee shop in Long Street, where I drove around for some time trying to find parking, and eventually managed to squeeze into a parking bay that had just been vacated. I dashed into the bistro where we were meeting for coffee. Suddenly a guy scooted up to me on a skateboard, kicked the back end of the skate board, which flipped up into his left hand while he shook my right and said ‘Zelda right?’

I laughed,  as this was a first to be meeting with a guy in baggies, a cap turned backward, and a skateboard. During our meeting I had to admit he was fascinating, the Geek talk tumbled out of his mouth, half of it I couldn’t understand myself.

Eventually, completing our meeting, with a few explanations regarding most of the jargon that I couldn’t understand, I said I needed to mull over some of what we had discussed. We parted ways, he skated off into the blue yonder, and I was presented with a R68 parking ticket from the attendant for two hours. How times have changed!!!!!
