    That's how I'd answer the question posed to Sychotic1, if anyone asked me.

    Not that anyone did.

    Perhaps my attire (way below "business casual") or my age (old enough to be those political operatives' father, maybe even grandfather), or my general scruffiness makes it obvious that I'm not one of them. Or maybe it's because I don't know how to "network" in the selling-yourself/go-getter mode. Or something.

    I've made business cards as part of my (pretty much unsuccessful) job-hunting strategy. But I never remember to hand them out, even on those rare occasions when I remember to carry them. I was cardless at NN13, so even if I'd been the sort that would interest political operatives and insiders, I couldn't leave a lasting impression with them. Nor could I get into NN13 events without standing in line to sign an attendance list have my email address harvested (almost always by an organization that already has it).

    Unrelatedly, it was a pleasure to meet and spend some quality time with you, thankgodforairamerica.

      for the life of me I can't remember what you said at dinner after pub quiz- the thing you said that made me say you won the night. do you remember what you said? I've been going nuts trying to remember.

        Not surprising, though, after three late nights of progressive revelry.

        If it pops back into my head, I'll let you know.
