Late in the year 1999 I quit my job. I handed over a signed paper where I wrote that I quit and then I started my new job first thing in the year 2000. I had a bunch of friends at the work I left and together with my closest friends (who coincidentally also switched jobs at roughly the same time) we decided we needed a way to keep in touch with friends that isn't associated with our current employer.
The fix, the "employer independent" social thing to help us keep in touch with friends and colleagues in the industry, started on the last of February 2000. The 29th of February, since it was a leap year and that fact alone is a subject that itself must've been discussed at that meetup.
Snaxx was born.
Snaxx is getting a bunch of friends to a pub somewhere in Stockholm. Preferably a pub with lots of great beers and a sensible sound situation. That means as little music as possible and certainly no TVs or anything. We keep doing them at a pace of two or three per year or so.
Thanks for a great time yesterday, friends! I'll be setting up a date for number 32 soon. I figure it'll be in the January 2015 time frame...If you want to get notified with an email, sign up yourself on the snaxx mailing list.
A few pictures from yesterday can be found on the Snaxx-31 G+ event page.
