Met Some Nice Folks Today

I stopped by the Fairmont Hotel in downtown Chicago after the InsideCounsel Superconference today and finally met the man, Scott Greenfield, who’s a lot friendlier in person than you might think.

The young lady with him is Chicago Twitter sensation Amy Derby. That’s probably not how she’d like to be introduced, but I don’t know much about her other than that she has almost 5000 Twitter followers and everybody seems to know her. If you follow Amy’s tweets, I should say that in real life she’s exactly how you think she’d be.

Oh, and all these other people were there too:

From left to right, they’re Dave Gulbransen (maybe), some guy (I’m bad at remembering names), Ashley Scheck (I can see her badge in the original image), some woman, a guy, another woman, another guy (somebody please help me), Kashmir Hill from AboveTheLaw.com (badge), another guy, Kevin Thompson from Cyberlaw (maybe), Ed from Blawg Review (or just some guy who’s using Ed’s identity to get chicks), Molly McDonough from ABA Journal (she gave me her card), and Adrian Dayton, best known for being Adrian Dayton.

Update: Kevin Thompson helped fill the blank spots in my memory. Here’s the list: Dave Gulbransen, Chris Schneider, Ashley Scheck, Jane Simon, Jeremy Kissel, Gwynne Monahan, R. David Donoghue, Kashmir Hill, Chris McGeehan, Kevin Thompson, Ed from Blawg Review, Molly McDonough, and Adrian Dayton.

Update: In a comment, Mirriam says “I still mentally draw in Greenfield’s mustache.” I say, why do it mentally when there’s Photoshop? Hope this helps:

    I still mentally draw in Greenfield’s mustache.

    Your tagging of the photo is priceless.

    Ok, that’s terrifying. Remind me to come smack you. :-)

    The blondes in the middle are @lawwriter (I think) and @econwriter5. I don’t know anyone’s real name.

    Let’s have a caption contest. What was Greenfield saying in this picture. I don’t remember and I was there, so I’ll go first:
    “I’m being groped by a lesbian. Don’t tell my wife.”

    I don’t remember being there at all. And I don’t look half bad in a mustache. Perhaps I’ll grow one.
