Weird Question Time

A few months ago me and Kenyatta had a meal with a couple of commenters here (who shall remain nameless) who were boyfriend and girlfriend. I also know that there are two people here who are mother and daughter.


My question is simple: Do any of the rest of you know each other? You don't have to say who, if you don't want to. Additionally, Have any of you met each other? 

The social aspects of online communities are rather fascinating to me. We've been debating doing meet-ups here in New York, and whenever I'm in other cities. But I'm on the fence, and not yet convinced that anyone will show up. I'm just a little curious about the nature of the community here.
