Redditors Plan Global Meetup in Los Angeles

Los Angeles users of the social networking/link-sharing site Reddit are planning a mass meetup this coming weekend in Griffith Park in honor of Global Reddit Meet-up Day. Given Reddit users’ notorious lack of real world social skills, the event promises lots of “awkward mingling” and “avoiding eye contact.” Your humble Fishie is going to be out of town this weekend, but if someone could please send us pics of the gathering we’d appreciate it. We would be fascinated to see who shows up at this thing, and if any of them are actually of the female persuasion.
