Why the fuck do I keep going to those damned podcasting meetups?

Let me start by saying but I LOVE the idea of podcasting meetup groups! What I don't understand is why the last three or four meetings have attended just left me feeling so angry and miserable. I feel really stupid for continuing to go but I can't seem to help myself. It comes down to one thing I hate about going too. It's the fucking presentations! I know that some of the people there are new and don't know all the things that the presentations cover but I find them so boring and long and drawn out and pointless and dumbed down and I do understand the irony of this sentence. It's not that I don't like the presenters either. Most of these people I really like. Some I don't. But it doesn't have anything to do with that. I can't stand sitting there listening to people talk about boring shit even if I like the people. I remember the good old days of the meetup group when we would just hang-out and talk geek. I loved it! Ever since the group got "organized" I have left every meeting frustrated. I love the beginnings of the meeting when everyone is just hangin-out talking. I guess I should just leave after the meeting "officially" starts. I would save a lot of time that way too. Tim, please in the future limit the presentations to no more than 30 minutes at the beginning of the meetings or I'm going to be forced to stop coming and I don't want to do that. Rant ends now.


Update: It turns out that my first real blog post in a long time turned out to be almost completely full of shit. I made the assumption that the three or four meetups that missed were just like the one I went to last Wednesday. I was way off. I really should just delete this post all together to try and save some face but I'm not going to as punishment for my mistake. At least one positive thing came out of my mistake though. I now have renewed faith in the awesomeness of the podcast meetups and I will keep going to them. That is, as long as random conflicts don't keep me from attending, like the last three or four months. Cya all later........
