Favorite t-shirt series: Freebase.com

Those of you who read this blog (and my more technical blog API Guy) regularly know that I’m a huge fan of the open collaborative database Freebase.com.

This weekend, I recruited my mom (who is currently visiting from out of state) and my wife to ride along with me on the 6 hour drive (each way) from Portland, OR to Vancouver, BC for a 3 hour Freebase.com meet-up at the Irish Heather Gastropub.

I met a bunch of cool people, including James and Ben from BioVenturist, Dale McGladdery (one of the organizers of Northern Voice), fellow Freebase developer-enthusiast Jim Pick, designer and techno-philosopher Dorian Taylor, and others.

While I was there, the Freebase community director hooked me up with a t-shirt:


PS—to make 12 hours of total driving for a 3 hour meeting make sense, think of it as a road-trip with home as the destination and a 3 hour tourism break at some interesting point in the middle.

    You didn’t stay overnight? That is hardcore. Did your wife and mom at least do something fun during those three hours?

    That shirt + that hair + that expression = total win.

    Cheers for the mention, Scott! Great to meet you.

    Thanks for the mention, it was great meeting you Sunday.

    I’m not sure what’s more hardcore, you for making the trip or your wife and mom coming with!

    Love the t-shirt series, wish I’d thought of that.

    My meager editing skills have been applied to the vid I shot and I have a post up: http://www.group42.ca/vancouver_freebase_meetup_report I’m so very glad everyone is better spoken than I am!
