On the DNT story! This is for you …
Best internet experience of the day.
Thanks for the kudos. I, for one, never thought we’d get past the first nerd night.
I always find out about Nerd Nite the day after. I’m signed up to the mailing list at duluth.nerdnite.com and all. Are you just full-up on nerds or what?
Aw man! If you look at (currently) the fifth post down in the trash folder. It looks like someone tried to give us a heads-up.
If there is any other way I can learn of upcoming Nerd Nites, please let me know! I was kinda depending on the mailing list to inform me.
Nerd Nite was in the PDD Calendar and also highlighted in a post on Monday.
Just a few quick notes:
1. I have never felt more like hugging a man than I did at Nerd Nite. John Lee, I feel your love and I feel your desires, as a G-Fan.
2. The AmHist presentation was bubbling with energy and maps, despite its failure to reference the single most important figure in the Revolutionary War: Andrzej Tadeusz Bonawentura Kościuszko. Wikipedia here.
3. A good time was had by all. The Gojiras were awesome, the crowd was engaged.
4. As a fan both of the shop and of the work, thanks to Tim Broman for donating an actual prize of actual value. (Not that Windows 3.1 doesn’t rock…) He brought a copy of locally produced comic book Apocalypse City, retailing at Collector’s Connection. The comic is by local art teacher John Hoban. Personally, without commercializing a cool event at a nonprofit venue, I think some greater synergy (and so maybe better prizes, says the guy who won a young adult novel written entirely as fan letters to Bruce Springsteen) between Nerd Nite and some local businesses would be awesome. There are many flavors of Nerd in Duluth. Behind the counter at Video Visions has got to be seven kinds of nerd presentation in the neonatal stages. There are 45 kinds of nerd within three square feet at Globe News in Superior.
Unrelated nerd activities continue this weekend: Killer Bunnies, I think, is the game at Collector’s Connection tonight (low stress, quick, card game). For those more dedicated, we have a sight to see: Dragonport will be running a board game recreation of the Battle of Normandy. “This epic game is being prepared on a table in an L shape that measures 12 feet long and 4 feet wide. Every Company that landed in the approx. 10 week long Normandy Campaign historically will be represented as we go forward with this game. The British, Americans, Germans, Free French, Polish, and Canadians will all be landing on to liberate or defending the German positions on the beaches of Normandy and beyond.” It looks awesome, but I would need too many bathroom breaks to enjoy it fully. But I’ll swing by to root for someone (the Polish, of course!).
If you’re a Facebook user, there’s also a Nerd Nite group there!
Alpha Nerd Nite members apologize for not updating the mailing list or using it to its full effect. Still getting the handle of marketing all of this!
Let the nerd flagellation begin!
