Last night I had the opportunity to go to a very fun event in San Francisco, Chic Meets Geek. As the name of the event implies, it was about the intersection of Chic Style with Geek Culture and the people who are trying to bridge that divide. As a Synergist, I needed to go to this event to get inspiration and to see those connections happen. I heard about the event from blogger Chris Pirillo who was offering tickets to those who could articulate in writing why they should go – I did and I got a ticket. Thanks Chris!
When I want to “soak up” an experience, I bring my journal along – I’ve been creating journals for years – since high school – honing my craft in architecture school, and then I’ve continued my hobby on travels to Europe, an African Safari, and across the United States as I bring the journals with me wherever I go. I bring my journaling tools with me now, including my pens, colored pencils, glue, watercolors, digital camera and a Polariod PoGo Instant Mobile Printer. It is all very compact and fits in a small bag.
Through the event as I talked with people, I tried to record the experience with my journal and here is what I came up with by the end of the night. You can see the photo album for this journal on Facebook.
As I’ve said numerous times, “Everything Starts with a Conversation” – this was a great event for that – I’ll definitely go again!
