Mistakes were made

New York City meets Munich

Press the flesh

ConnyWho is Conny? and I will make our appearance at the monthly Blog Meetup being held at the Half King Bar tomorrow night. We had a good time at the last one, so why not? In this city, it’s always good to look for excuses to get out and meet people.

The only unfortunate thing to happen from being a part of Meetup was a bit of spam from another Meetup user. The folks from Meetup made the singular mistake of doing an emailing to a list of people using “To” instead of “BCC”. The Meetup folks apologized profusely for this gaff, since their policy is to never release email addresses. Sure enough, within forty-eight hours, Kate Klenfner of Koch Entertainment, one of the recipients of that email gaff from Meetup spammed me about some band performing in New York. Since Kate doesn’t seem to think there’s anything wrong with using an email address taken from a message she was told to delete, I don’t think there’s anything wrong with putting her address on my blog unscrambled. What’s odd is I don’t even think Kate has a blog, so why is she signed up for Blog Meetup?

I can almost hear the spam-bots chewing now…
