The first Gay Geek Dinner was held last recently, and I had an enjoyable time and got to meet new people. We ended up with eight people in the end, which worked well for chatting together.We met up at Mighty Mighty, with it's great ambiance. Something I hadn't thought about was how strangers could meet each other in what eventually was a busy bar, but we managed. The Google t-shirts, discounts cards for Moo, and Armageddon swag were all well received.Conversation was casual and varied, and touched on:Twitter;Mac technology, and the rumours that future mac OS's may be able to run Windows executables in a native Mac environment;Mobile phone features, comparing Okta touches, and small phones in general;NZ mobile data charges, and the advantages of working for a telco;Photography;Home electronics, especially Roombas;Entertainment, including Freeview TV, Battlestar Galactica, and Doctor Who;Gaming, including Rock Band and Xbox 360, and for a short while the PS3;Having a non-geek partner, who doesn't understand the fascination with any of the above.When time came for dinner, i.e. a few people asked when were we eating, we moved on to Southern Cross. Food geeks would love the way steaks are served, on a sizzling hot stone.As we finished eating, the live music that started playing wasn't to our tastes so wandered back to Mighty Mighty for an after-dinner drink, losing three diners in the process. The evening finished with hot chocolate at Ernesto, being waved at by friendly cops stopped at a red light. All-in-all an enjoyable evening for the first Gay Geek Dinner, meeting people with similar interests.
