As Old as What You Do

Filed under: Geek,Liberty,Metalog — apotheon @ 05:17

Last night, I was elected to the Larimer County Libertarian Party Board of Directors. Being on a board of directors isn’t a requirement for being old, but I think being old is a requirement for being on a board of directors. I’m now officially old.

Apparently, the board meetings now take place in a shopping center diagonally across an intersection from the neighborhood in which I live. I showed up to a meeting and, next thing I knew, I was on the board.

Later this week, I’ll help the Chairman figure out why he seems to be the only person that can’t send emails to the mailing list. In the process of trying to sort that problem out last night, we discovered that Barnes & Noble now has a deal with AT&T Wireless so that you have to pay real money to use their network. Darn them. I’ll be getting my non-home wireless access somewhere else from now on — which means I won’t be buying their food while connecting to the Internet away from home.


  1. Are most of the members young? I’m not active in any political party, but I get the impression that the Libertarian party has a younger constituency than most.

  2. Actually, it seems pretty heavily populated by the middle-aged here. I may have been the youngest person at the meeting — certainly not any more than the second youngest (not counting someone’s daughter who had tagged along for some reason unrelated to libertarianism). It wasn’t a big meeting, mind you, but still a pretty good indicator of the average age of the county LP to judge by my experience.

    . . . and the guy who might have been younger than me wasn’t on the board.
