Does anyone know the date, time, and location (in the Marriott Fairview Park) of the Black Pen Society meeting at the DC Show?

 

Thanks!

I keep waiting for the Poobah to declare a blue ink meeting.

San Francisco International Pen Show - The next great pen show is on schedule for August 27-28-29, 2021. If we all do what we need to do...you can Book your travel and tables and make SF 2021 the Return. 
 

 My PM box is usually full. Just email me: my last name at the google mail address.

Considering the large influx of younger people in the hobby, I understand that there is going to be a joint meeting of the Purple Pen Society and the Purple Ink Society at the DC show. I don't know the details. I think I read about it somewhere.

Fortunately I’m not going so I won’t need to skip this purple event.

Let's not be dismissive. I'm not going to the show, either, but I would be consumed with eagerness to attend a joint meeting of the Purple Pen Society and the Purple Ink Society.


I envision practically a civil war between the folks who think it's totally cool to match a purple pen with purple ink, problem solved, next! and other people who might think it extremely limiting to box yourself in by using only purple ink in a purple pen.


No fist fights, I trust, but those are two seriously opposed perspectives.


What we really need, though, is to create a critical mass of interest in the two Societies, so we can nudge them from one kind of reality to another.

I do hope the Black Pen Society was able to convene and to ensure the pin for this year was discussed and a new 2020 designer identified by the Grand PooBah. As a Knight for BPS here in Canada I do send my regrets and I hope to attend in 2020 even if I have to drive from Saskatchewan.

Rob Maguire (Plse call me "M or Mags" like my friends do...)I use a Tablet, Apple Pencil and a fountain pen. Targas, Sailor, MB, Visconti all wonderful.

I too was sad to miss the 2019 meeting in DC. I do hope a better venue was found so that the Grand Poobah and other speakers could be heard and understood. I'll be back next year.

Rationalizing pen and ink purchases since 1967.

      Even so, you'd end up with a fragmented list, and it becomes an O(N²) process for each prospective requestor to check what is available: effectively recreate the list of currently active servers (without any reliable up-to-date info upfront about the inks and number of samples on offer in the thread) from the sequential list of posts, which may be spread over two or even more pages, and then query each server independently to check what is currently on offer.   It comes down to not hav

      If one wanted to do this, one could just use the "About Me" field which appears to be unlimited in size.  And if a bunch of people wanted to cooperate, the Member Title field (or signature) could be used to this end - "Ink Giver" (or some such) could be used by those with inks to give...  No software edits required.

      I suppose the update issue could be mitigated.  One would post a link in signature, to the particular part of your profile where you list the inks that you're willing to post samples to others, gratis.  But looking at profiles, I suspect that would require an edit to the board's software, potentially a nontrivial task.

      I read your idea as getting willing givers to publicly register as members of a set of heterogenous servers, in a system in which a client would explicitly select an available server from a list, to which he/she will then send a request privately and asynchronously. Request handling in the system is unmanaged, and individual requests are handled by the targeted servers completely independently on each other. I think the model is fine, although there are some operational concerns you may want to

      First thought on the method/system of ink sharing: Think the best way, to begin with, is to follow the way of the US thread: offer up a (small) list of inks you are willing to PIF, to whoever expresses interest. Write clearly in the "mission statement" how it works, with a tiny "quid pro quo" that even a struggling student can comply with, i.e. post your opinion and a writing sample, with option of a full review if desired.   So yours truly might say: "I'm offering up samples of D
