Pre-GnomeDex BBQ Pictures

As you might have seen, I put a call out to anyone interested in coming to my house for a pre-GnomeDex BBQ. Thankfully, it turned out better than I could have imagined. People seemed to have a great time and the folks that showed up still have me in a bit of awe. It was so very cool to meet so many folks I admire (and lots of new people too), in my own backyard.

Oh, and big thanks to Boris for the Mann-ing the grill (I know, bad pun).

Check out the photo set on Flickr, where I've been using the tag "preGnomedexBBQ".
