Thanks for the great recap, @lukhas =].
And thanks to all the lovely people who came along and made the blitz tournament and meetup a mind blowingly awesome night =].
Thanks to the the Lichess staff for being funny, friendly and interesting company over the few days, too! =]. Sorry about my snoring :P.
I will conclude my post with an in-joke.
Wish I could have joined! Do you hold meetups on a regular basis or was this something of a one-off given the World Championship? If it's semi-regular and world-wide please consider holding a meetup in the San Francisco area.
