Goofball events like Bring Your Own Bigwheel are what made me fall in love with San Francisco in the first place. This is old-school San Francisco weirdness, and the fact that things like this still periodically happen here is one of the major factors that still makes it worth putting up with all the ways in which this city has gotten worse over the last few years. This event is just so hilarious, stupid, and a little dangerous. My face hurts from smiling so much!
I've gone to this every year for the last 8 years or so, and I think that in only two or three of those years have I managed to convince any of my friends to come along.
All of my friends hate fun, you see.
By "2-piece" I mean QWERTY where the left and right side are physically separated and movable, not connected permanently at a fixed distance or angle.
Kits need not apply. No, I don't want to solder my own.
I just now started googling for the term "postmodem era" as a pun on the end of dialup, and it's remarkable how many hits there are in old documents, including those that predate the personal computer entirely. Apparently this kerning-based pun is overshadowed by the fact that an awful lot of text on the web got there by a process that began with OCR.
