IM transcript with an old East Coast friend who randomly met a recent West Coast friend of mine:
(23:04:07) Jeffrey Crouse: did your friend tell you how we discovered that we both knew you? (23:04:41) M. Rothenberg: i dont think so, she just mentioned that she had met you. (23:06:06) Jeffrey Crouse: well she had mentioned that she was from Berkeley, and i was complaining about how i missed New York and how it was so much better than Atlanta, and she said she knew some people that were always complaining about how much better NY was than anywhere else, and that one guy in particular was especially adamant about it (23:06:29) Jeffrey Crouse: and i said “is that guy named Matthew Rothenberg?”
Well it’s true, ok?
