Thread: Who knows another Cyburbian in real life

  1. #1

    Who knows another Cyburbian in real life

    All right, this has probably been asked before, but here it goes anyway. We know each other in the alternative reality cyburbia, but who knows another Cyburbian real life? I'll start it out by saying I know PU, yesterday's birthday boy. We used to work together many moons ago and have remained friends over the years. So, who else?

    Well of course I know Budgie!
    Have met Cardinal.

    (Missed Planderella and BEK when I was down there )

    Have been on the phone with RJ and can't wait to meet him!
    It is all a matter of perspective!!!

    I'm not certain what you mean by 'real life', but I have met the following Cyburbians in person: Cardinal, Michaelskis, JNL, and Plannerbyday. And I've probably met others in person and not known they were Cyburbians
    People will miss that it once meant something to be Southern or Midwestern. It doesn't mean much now, except for the climate. The question, “Where are you from?” doesn't lead to anything odd or interesting. They live somewhere near a Gap store, and what else do you need to know? - Garrison Keillor

    I'm sorry. Is my bias showing?

    Lets see... I have met JNL and Cardnal, I go to school with big_g for my undergrad, I work with Maister, and see Planner by Day about once every few months... and I have erosenda in one of my classes.

    That reminds me... we need a SW Michigan Laefest one of these days.

    let's see.. I've worked with mendelman and haven't had any external contact with anyone else.
    edit: Unknowingly interviewed with DecaturHawk

    I would have interviewed with Chet and probably Prudence if I would have spelled better and grammer checked my hastily prepared cover letter ..(the way things went there, I'm glad I didn't get that chance.)

    NHPlanner and Planner Groupie - stopped by to visit me on maternity leave for Jack, when Wes was just a bun in the oven

    I run into GeogPlanner occasionally at planning functions in the region

    TSC and I had the fortune to attend a leadership training workshop together.

    I think that's about it.....

    There's a distinct possibility that I had a class with Habanero in college, though I'm not completely sure. I know several routine lurkers on the board (I don't understand why they don't register).

    "Oh, that is all well and good, but, voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same way in any country."

    Met up once with OfficialPlanner for coffee

    I know the mighty Man With a Plan. I've heard his Michael McDonald impression and you all haven't. I wonder if he's moved into his new place yet.

    I met NHPlanner once years ago before I knew he was "NHPlanner."


    Hey H, get you-know-who from across the hall on here. His screen name can be "The Hawk."

    I met Chet, Prudence, and Plannerbabs at the Indiana Fall Conference 2004.
    Met Mike Gurnee at the Denver APA Conference.
    Probably have met others who were Ball State students attending IPA functions over the past 10 yrs.

    Why don't you knock it off with them negative waves?
    Why don't you dig how beautiful it is out here?
    Why don't you say something righteous and hopeful for a change?

    Are you sure you're not hurt ?
    No. Just some parts wake up faster than others.
    Broke parts take a little longer, though.

    I worked with GISGal and occasional poster, Indigo. I have met and drank beer with Prudence on a couple of occasions. I met Chet like 5-6 years ago before I was on Cyburbia.

    I almost met Greenscapist at a Radiohead concert but we couldn't find each other.

    I am also friends with the infamous former cyburbianite, Anti Planner Movement (aka APM)

    Was supposed to meet budgie in Milwaukee a couple of years back but never made it to the bar he was at.

    There are a couple of occasional posters that I am pretty sure I know but am not 100 percent sure.

    Trail Nazi, sister celeste, and I are former co-workers and good friends as well.
    I've also met RJ, H, and Ecofem.

    GISgal works in a neighboring community, and I probably have met others unknowingly at conferences. I also know a few lurkers.

    Tis' true. I graduated August '01.

    I've met Ludes and Cardinal. That's all. I wish I would've met more, but in AZ we don't get many visitors. But I plan on meeting many more in San Francisco next month.
    When Jesus said "love your enemies", he probably didn't mean kill them.
