Field of View: San Diego Free Press Meet-and-Greet

More than 30 people attended the San Diego Free Press meet-and-greet held Sunday in Lemon Grove. Presentations on the history of the internet, how to write a blog post and the original SDFP were given before opening up the floor to general introductions and collaboration. Food and drinks were shared as well as ideas about how those in attendance could best contribute to the SDFP.

Papa Doug, if your ears were burning yesterday, this was why.

    What an amazing group of people! The energy in this old house yesterday was fantastic (even with the almost 100° heat). Many, many thanks to all who came. Annie, you did a wonderful job of capturing it.

    All of the people involved in putting this together have been anticipating it for weeks and it was truly gratifying to see all these folks together in one place!
