I got my invitation to the SI Reunion today. It exhorts its recipients to:

  • Iron your clothes!
  • Pack your suitcase!
  • Drive, fly or sail to Ann Arbor!

What the heck? So we have to start ironing our clothes now? Thanks a lot, SI. What kind of computer nerds would we be if we showed up with our clothes ironed? How would they tell us apart from the archivists? I suppose next you'll be telling us we have to wear pants.

I shall not be attending, in protest of this clothes-ironing policy. Either that or because I will be out of the country.

It's official I'm sailing to Ann Arbor and wearing wrinkled clothes. Actually...I can't attend because I'll be in the area the 2 weekends prior to the reunion.

When I clicked on 'ironing' in your tags, I got an internal server error. Even your blog fails to recognize the need for ironing.

I work with an SIer, I IM other SIers at work since we work at the same company, I see other SIers almost every week socially. And I just left SI. I have no need to reunite in Ann Arbor . . . and in October, of all times.

Ha! You just don't want to iron.
