I took some low-quality pictures with my iPhone, which can be found here:
http://flickr.com/photos/jeresig/sets/7 ... 135086613/

Feel free to tag them with your name(s), where appropriate.

I had a fantastic time - looking forward to any future get-togethers!

I remember seeing one guy walking around with an iPhone. Slight chance it was you. :)

I mean nobody else would have an iPhone. :)

I made a flickr group just for the pics, so anybody can join and add to it:

http://www.flickr.com/groups/xkcdmeetup/

I'm in the process of uploading my photos, but they'll be up there soon.

I'm essentially new to Xkcd, and not even in the same hemisphere, yet looking at those pictures made me smile. I'm envious of everyone that was there, seriously.

Oh, and I'm sure Randall must have a big ass-grin on his face right now, as well :D.

Wasn't there another flickr-related thing written on the ground? Maybe involving xkcd and dreams?

It was telling people what to put as a tag on the photographs. It was "XKCDdreams".

Given the image size limits on Flickr, is anyone hosting any hi-res shots of the whiteboards?

Manalive, does this look like the most awesome gathering of people since the congregation on Mount Sinai. Actually, it looks slightly more awesome.

Hi res photos will be hosted at sometime, I imagine davean will make the official site for them.

Others of us here took some good ones, I'll host the bigger files and link them for those of you who are impatient.

Dancing raptor guy

Postby DragonHawk » Mon Sep 24, 2007 6:35 am UTC

Until such time as I can figure out why YouTube doesn't like the videos from my camera, here's a video I took of that most hilarious dancing raptor guy:

[never mind]

3.4 MB, so don't click if you're on dial-up. :) Sorry for the poor quality, but it was taken with an el-cheapo digital still camera that does video as an "extra".

(Hmmm. I'm sure I have a bandwidth quota on that account. I wonder what it is? I bet I'm about to find out! ;-) )

EDIT: For posterity: There are plenty of better videos up on YouTube now, so I never bothered to upload my edited clip (which is all of 12 seconds long).

Flickr allows hi-res photos, just not with a free account. Unfortunately I wasn't able to stay to the end to get hi-res shots of the board so I will have to wait for someone else.

Yeah, we need the cow to fix this sign...I know adding a space between sweet and ass is a very minor task and it's probably beneath him, but we're lazy, and I think the union will only allow certain people to use photoshop anyway.

Sarah (girlfriend), Helen, Barbie and I at the Museum of Science.Ben/Dragonhawk was with us as well but somehow managed not to get in any photos. Hopefully Helen and Sarah will get their photos up so that you can see Barbie shocking me via 'respek knuckles' while holding onto a vandergraff generator.

Oh and this is the photo group I found on Flickr

I found this evidence of my existence in a much larger crowd picture. It's me, showing my Randall-signed monkey-sex picture to a friendly, cute girl, while she blatantly neglects to fall in love with me. The bitch.
