Naked (almost) Networking

CHICAGO - Saturday a friend invited me to the top deck of a downtown health club, where the probably a hundred or so sun bathers surrounded a three lane pool. Constant drink orders kept the waitstaff running around - and their deliveries loosened everyone's tongues.

So we talked real estate, and a nearby fellow called his agent. A bikini-clad woman next to us needed a better agent, and he put the cell phone on speaker and held it in the air.

Soon she had another agent.

Actually meeting in the Flesh:
This week I'm meeting two fellows I've been conversing with for some time online. Today I'm heading to Hyde Park to meet the fellow with the following credentials:

President, The Association For Community Networking (AFCN)
Acting Executive Director, CTCNet Chicago Chapter
Co-Chair, Illinois Community Technology Consortium (ilCTC)
Vice President, CAAELIIVice
President, NPOTechs
I bet you can figure his name out pretty quick.

Wednesday, I'll meet with
