Two Worlds Collide

Filed under: Personal

So I’m in Portland for Sock Summit, the epic knitting convention. Yes, these things exist. Yes, they are totally awesome.

But it happens to be co-located with OSCON, so when we walked into the convention centre, Leah and I were struck by “Hey, our *other* people!” And when looking around for knitting registration, we ran into a friend from Grace Hopper. Quick catch up and “no, really, we’re here for the knitting” and some discussion about girl geeking and smart textiles and now we have a plan for browsing the OSCON expo hall this afternoon.

The world is small, geeks collide, and the integration of disparate loves is where magic happens.
