I met Adam Cleaveland, a well known blogger, at the Emergent US theological conversation, well sort of. I fired up ichat, and located the other mac users in the room connected to a wireless network, adam was one of them.
It was strange to talk to someone I knew from their blog, and then to let each other know where in the room we were. When I left early for the airport we waved each other goodbye. Just reminded me again of how technology makes connections more interesting and with new possibilities. Maybe next time I'll get to shake Adam's hand in person.
