    ...someone had "TU" stickers that you could put on your badge. That was useful for identifying Kossacks.

    So too was the opportunity to put your username on your badge. Maybe next time I'll ask to have the username in large font, meatspace-name smaller.

    I've found that, more and more each year, NN is two near-separate meetings:

    • business networking for operatives
    • meet-up for Kossacks

    I understand the reasons for that, and appreciate the value of it, but I have to say that I liked it better when it was just us. I don't want us to be relegated to the C&J dinner, community quilts, and NFTT while business deals take up the rest of it.

    Labor is prior to, and independent of, capital. Capital is only the fruit of labor, and could never have existed if labor had not first existed. Labor is the superior of capital, and deserves much the higher consideration. -- K.Marx A.Lincoln
