Back in the summer of 2009 I had lunch with Patrick Vlaskovits. ...I've since joined him for a number of lunches & dinners here and there when he's around, most recently with other folks—like Dave Asprey, Dr BG (twice), Brent Pottenger, etc.
But sometime after our initial meeting he pitched me a couple of ideas.
One was for PaleoHacks. I'm proud to have been the very first promoter of it, quickly helping it to attain some momentum which never stopped. Of course, it has long since had its own momentum, but I'll never regret helping give it an initial push from thousands of readers...probably many long since gone from both this blog and PH.
Update: Oh, I see the thread has been closed. Now that's disappointing for an attention whore like me!
