Hui-chen and I went up to Taipei on Sunday evening to meet up with some bloggers at an informal gathering hosted by Byron, of Textura Design, and Bike Hugger. It was a nice group of tech types with talk about blogging, politics and of course, technology. There are other accounts of the event worth reading, and with some great photos:
Darren Melrose Great photos!
IslaFormosa Apparently there was sausage? I didn’t see any sausage! I love sausage! Nevermind, smartass (see comments).
Textura Design Thanks for hosting this event Byron!

Now, I have to tell about a funny thing that happened. There was a giveaway of some cool stuff (technically, called “scwhag). Byron asked if he could use my hat to put cards into for the drawing. I had no objection of course (except that my hat was a bit sweaty!). But I suggested to Byron that I should disqualify myself from the drawings because my hat was being used, and if I were to win the top prize, well, it could be considered a conflict of interest. Of course, I was joking and Byron laughed it off saying it didn’t matter.
I won the top prize….
Here is the video, embedded for your convenience:
Thanks to Byron and his colleagues for having us!
See you at Blogtoberfest on October 25th!
