The Well's 20th anniversary

I missed the local anniversary party and the afterparty the next day, but the first one got a decent write up in the Chronicale / SF Gate (Hippies, freethinkers and geeks mark two decades of dipping into the Well):

The crowd looked like the stereotype of the Bay Area intellectual and creative community. And, indeed, that’s what the Well’s community has always been: the writers, artists, geeks, activists and freethinkers who personify the Bay Area.

The Well’s tradition of “office parties” long ago established the pattern that some face-to-face (“f2f”) contact can greatly solidify a virtual community.
Oh, and here’s another take on the anniversary parties from the UK Register by Wellpern <wendyg>.
