You could invite Vomeita, she is the only woman on deskthority. But she's in the UK.

That's what someone said to me, but as in 'confirmed woman'. :o

I usually think about what I post, and that's what I knew!

I'm surprised that I forgot about Cindy, as she's far from forgettable …

I went to MrInterface's Desktority Parties in 2012 and 2013 and the big Paris Meetup #2 in 2016 (mostly reddit people). All great fun!

I am not sure that is a compliment :lol:
Jam is also here from time to time, but not so active lately.
There is also Mre XMIT, but I don't think she has been active lately, with a brand new baby to take care of.

I've met a couple of people who lurk on the forums (DT, GH), but never post anything (which is a pity btw, the first one, for example, built a custom ergonomic keyboard w/ Alps switches from scratch long before it was cool).

I've also made a few people get an ErgoDox. :evilgeek: Not sure if they joined the community afterwards though.

I've met Orihalcon and a couple others here. Also went to a couple meetups this year and met various people from Reddit and GH. I'll be going to KeyCon 2018 in Pittsburgh, PA so I'm sure I'll meet others from here.

I was about to say that there's others but in the couple of months it took me to reply I've been beaten to it. :D Besides which, I'm an old fart and quite difficult to coax out of my lair.

Haven't met anyone from here but I have been meeting various people I first knew online since my college years: so over 30 years since my first encounter (and my second encounter was an early reminder that online people are real: I was a horrid teenager). It's usually fun, and contrary to what some people think, most are pretty much exactly as you'd expect. Also met my other half online nearly 20 years ago. To think I almost didn't reply to that random email!

Edit: also time for a new and more unflattering avatar of me pulling a face because my picture is being taken.
