Going to a mechanical keyboards meetup in Bloomington after work tonight. Making myself go, because I'm stupid about these things.

@lawremipsum thanks? 😄

I went to a small impromptu meetup several months ago because I needed some info and a hands-on demo with something I was considering buying. I was afraid it was going to be very neckbeardy. But it the other folks turned out to be two very cool gals. So I have hopes that the local keyboard scene is not a dudebro thing and I’ll do my best to help keep it that way.

Thinking about that adult friends thread from the other day, so, gonna give this a chance.
