Recommended Posts

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.

      Not sure if this has been suggested already but would a setting for localized regions or chapters in FPN be helpful? I don't know if there is a way to find local FPN members who would be nearby. I don't know if we want to be discoverable but a setting to know how many members are in 25, 50, or a 100 miles of each other might be helpful. We can create a regions specific network like Craigslist where people could use that to connect with nearby members, conduct in person sales, arrange FPN meetups

      Hi again all, I forgot to tell y'all that I made the post about Sweden ink PIF. Most have probably found it long ago, but here's a link, anyway:

      I read your blog post and all the replies with much interest. I'm a FP user in Australia. Been part of this forum for years but rarely post. I did come across your ink sharing thread and considered participation. For me it's not lack of interest but lack of time to play around with FP and inks. I'd feel bad to put my hand up for the box and just have it sit until gosh knows when...   I also think that the FP community in Australia is smaller, and I wonder how many in the community are

      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.
