I Am King Dork (Pt. 2)

So last night, I’m hanging out at the Boston Postmortem, getting my networking groove on, when I notice that the guy I’m standing next to is wearing a really old-school Looking Glass shirt (it was old-school because it said “Looking Glass Technologies”). I didn’t recognize his name from his name tag.

“I couldn’t help but notice the Looking Glass shirt,” I said. “You guys were great.”

“Thanks,” he said.

“I had the wonderful experience of working with some ex-Looking Glass people at the Indie Game Jam.”

“Oh really?”

We get to talking about LG folks at the Game Jam for about 2 minutes. Then I ask, “So, what is it you did at Looking Glass?”

“Oh, I founded the company.”

Foot. In. Mouth. I knew the name ‘Paul Neurath’ looked familiar. -20 old school points for me!

Relax man, you’re still legions ahead of those of us who don’t know any of this stuff.

Dude, that is *so* harsh. If I were there, I woulda….

I woulda….

Ok, I probably would not have even talked with him.

But yes, Looking Glass did rock.

jeremiah’s right – don’t sweat it. Your out there in the game.

Just to be harsh, Darius – with your social skills, that could have been an AWESOME networking opportunity.

I hope you managed to mumble around your foot well enough to make with the friendly! :)

(Sure, I would have been ten times worse in that situation, but, hey, you’re some kind of grand master. You’re supposed to be more than ten times better than me, right? Come on, man, live up to your inflated reputation!)
