Going to dConstruct? Help test our latest feature | The Lanyrd Blog

What if you’re antisocial and unfriendly and don’t want to meet strangers…? It feels a bit creepy and makes me very slightly dread the event because I’ll be expecting x strangers to hunt me down (in a friendly way).

I realise it’s a tricky balance and this is an interesting thing to try and get right. For me, as someone who usually ends up at conferences only hanging out with people I already know, I feel like I’m now going to have to look out for a person who wants to meet me (either to fulfil the obligation and say hello, or to consciously avoid them). And if I don’t end up meeting them I will somehow have failed at the event. (I’m fully prepared to accept this is just me though, and I’m not trying to say this is a terrible feature!)
