I've gotten a lot of messages like this from people coming to the BBQ. I got a lot for the other BBQs as well. They all say something along the lines of “I'm worried that no one will talk to me.” Honestly, all the BBQs have been very laid back with lots of strangers mingling. As long as you're friendly, you'll have fun and meet people.
So don't worry!
OK, not everyone… I just got this piece of “fanmail”:

I must say I find your site and work repulsive. To bad you can't show anything that is more then just a few hours old. One day (if it hasn't happened already) you are going to kill someone. And why are you trying to do plastic surgery you are no doctor. Maybe you should have learned how to do this before you thought it was cool to cut something or poke something. Get a life.
