At Siggraph 2005

I’m at a conference today and occasionally pull out my laptop to check email, or get away from a boring lecture, etc. Yeah, I forgot my blackberry. Argh!
I use Trillian as my instant messenger, and have Rendezvous set up as one of the IM clients. Suddenly this category “People Nearby” has started populating itself and being useful!
While I was at lunch a friend of mine popped up on there, someone that I didn’t know was at the conference. This is a pretty darn great idea – it’s basically showing me people who are also running the Rendezvous protocol that are on the same local subnet. Most of these folks are on Macs, but Trillian Pro also supports Rendezvous. This can be very useful at a conference. 🙂
