If I see someone once, I tend to remember them forever. Upon seeing them again, a little flurry of familiarity kicks up in my gut. I’m compelled to interact. Let’s connect!
This sticky memory includes photographs, even those noticed only in passing. The more I mix and mingle within the local tech and social media community, the more crossed these mental wires become. Did I meet you online or “in real life”?
And is it creepy to recognize you when we’ve never really met?
It’s a tough call. Call it crazy, but I’d rather err on the side of awkward sauce than miss an opportunity to connect.
