77 - Get your drink on – http://seattledrunks.net/

There’s a new wiki in town that was inspired by the xls listing of happy hours (which I think got started or exposed by Seattle Metroblog, but I could be wrong.)

Anyway, it is now in wiki form on the web so that anyone can go and add/edit information to make this a totally comprehensive list. There’s already quite a few plaes that I know of that are missing, but I have to get the right details before I add them.

I suggest you do the same and help grow this into something big!

79 - Today’s Ballard Locks Photo Shoot

Well that sucks, I just spent 30 mins typing this post up and I closed the wrong browser window! GRRR… Let’s try this again… (tip of the day, save often…)

One word for today, “wow!” I was not at all sure what to expect today and was totally psyched to see 50 some folks at the Locks today with cameras to stand up for civil rights and against racial profiling.

I’ll be editing this post as folks post blog entries and pages with photos from the event today. If you have one and don’t see it below, send me a mail or comment and I’ll add it to the list. I want to make sure everyone’s thoughts and concerns get crossed link left and right to increase the visibility of what caused this and to let everyone know the number of people who refuse to sit down.

Another thing I think everyone should do is send Ian a quick e-mail letting him know your thoughts and offering your support (whether it be words, actions, or whatever.) In fact, I just sent a mail requesting updates and suggest you do the same. I hope to hear great progress of change being effected as a result of all of this.

My apologies for my seemed solitude and disorganization, but it seems that mid-day my inner introvert kicked in and took over (darn devil does that at the most inopportune times!) I wish I could have done personal name exchanges with more of you, but mass socialization wounds my precious psyche (maybe it’s time for Toastmasters…)

I’d like to thank the ACLU and Peacekeepers for sending representatives that helped wrangle us all into one location and give us the peace of mind that only those with decades of experience could do. Thanks also to Cat for getting together one of the larger group photos, cheerfully done by a PI photographer. I didn’t get his card, but thanks to him as well for being so kind as to do that for us! Check out Cat’s site, as I’m sure when she gets the e-mail with it, that she’ll post it there.

The day was wonderful and I had a good time shooting off some pictures, and a great time talking to everyone. I saw some folks I’d met before and a lot of new folks from all over: Cat, Laura, Michael, Garrett, Phil were all in attendance as were some folks from other sides of the fence (timj351 from dpchallenge.com, and Dennie who read it in the Stranger to name a few). Also James, Don, Leslie, Mary, Sibyl, Ric, Aileen, Cindy and so many more.

I took pictures with my new Powershot Pro1, which apparently saves its raw files in a different format than my old Powershot G2, so I need to install a new piece of software before I can get to the pictures I took today. I’m thouroughly wiped and will have to save that for tomorrow. Check back in the afternoon for a look see (I’ll link to that post below for ease of anyone that wants to see my shots…)
