Some thoughts on Bloggers.SG 2005

I reached the venue at 1:45pm and a queue had already formed outside DXO. Sure is interesting to see my T-shirt design worn by several volunteers. I thought the queue was for the T-shirt (which I am entitled to a free piece along with the others who submitted designs for the T-shirt design competition) so I joined the queue. Wrong. A volunteer beckoned those in the queue who haven't bought their T-shirts to come forward to make the purchase. Hell, felt like a blur cock.

Leaving the queue, I walked to the guys selling the T-shirts and told them I designed the T-shirt. A lady volunteer asked for my desired T-shirt size and handed it to me without question. I didn't know I had "DANIEL WANG - WINNER OF BLOGGERS.SG 2005 T-SHIRT DESIGN COMPETITION" stamped on my forehead. Either that, or maybe my Jedi mind trick actually worked.

I only attended the first segment (SG blogging communities) of the event as I had other matters to attend to after 4pm. I got to say that Bloggers.SG is an event that one should not go alone (like me). Felt somewhat awkward/detached just by observing members of the various communities or groups of friends chatting away. It seemed so...SURREAL. Like being inside THE MATRIX. "Oh look, that's Mr Brown and company..." A passage from the Bible sums it up real good: "AND THE WORD WAS MADE FLESH."

It IS good to see the luminaries of the SG blogging scene in the flesh. Even though there was an open mike session to prove that the SG blogging aint just about Mr Miyagi, Mr Brown, etc, I felt as though I was attending a hearing in a War Crimes Tribunal. "We will now call upon so and so to provide a testimony...". Maybe the whole event should have been done online, where bloggers can continue to relish their anonymity and give their twenty cents worth.
