158/365 – Meditation Games #158 – Color Mixer

Some geeky folks, meeting the stereotype of those that prefer to stick around indoors or eschew the outside for the internet, seem to disdain the idea of a mixer – a term to describe an informal party meant to get people to be acquainted. Maybe it’s the fact that forced social interaction where there normally would not be isn’t their cup of tea, or perhaps the fact that people tend to feel that this kind of building bonds needs to happen naturally rather than in an artificially generated setting like a party or a dance specifically for that purpose. But these same people tend to underestimate that mixers can also serve as a means to conveniently find those who you already have something in common with, such as the developer joining a local queer group.
