About 20 people stopped by Ning today and were greeted by a conference room full of sweets and beer. Co-founders Gina Bianchini and Marc Andreessen met us as we got off the elevator and both seemed genuinely happy to meet me and the rest of the group.
Adam Rifkin took a few photos of the event.
Marc asked about stopping by my office. I work from home, but sure, if you want to come by, let me know and I’ll give you my address. Or meet somewhere that’s easier to find. I told Marc to stop by any time he’d like. He suggested 3am.
I also met Hasan, who is apparently the only person in the entire Silicon Valley that Adam Rifkin doesn’t know. So that was a treet.
The short version of the story is that Ning was rather gracious, and although they obviously were a little irritated that we were poking fun at them they took it in stride. Thanks to Yoz, Marc, and Gina for having a sense of humor and hosting a bunch of crazy bloggers.
