Meeting QuakeCon People — by Jennifer Danakate Kahng

“For Christmas in 1998, I received a digital camera. Between then and now, I’ve probably taken a couple thousand pictures, more so in the beginning than now. As with all things, the novelty has worn off, but I still take pictures. Here are some of the more notable collections. I’m working on getting the rest of my pictures online but there are so many, who knows if or when that will happen.”

danakate @ dallas — dallas, tx in august 2001

“hi :) i was able to take a vacation during august of 2001. it just so happened that quakecon was going on during august 9 – 12 and that gave me the perfect opportunity to meet some people i’ve only known online and others i get to see yearly, if that often. the event itself is pretty much a big party and not really my thing, so i stayed with my friends riana and rich and hung out with them. we also stole my friend yoss away from quakecon for a day to hang out with us. here is my collection of pictures that i took. i hope to put some more up once riana and yoss send me the pictures they took.”
