We went to our first Couchsurfing gathering in North America today. It's a weekly gathering of people from the CS community plus travelers and friends and whoever wants to show up! There were about 30-35 people there in the end. We ended up sitting by a guy who knew my uncle! Small world. Good people, though, with lots of neat stories and experiences from all walks of life, from professionals to professional hippies. It was held in Moose's Down Under, hence the moose.
