SGI Virtual Reunion Tonight on Zoom at 7PM!

17 02 2021

It’ll be so great to see so many SGI friends tonight, which we’re hosting on Zoom since we can’t do our usual in-person event until COVID is a thing of the past! This will be a fun way to catch up, see familiar faces and swap SGI stories.

If you haven’t already registered for tonight, you need to register in advance here:

SGI Reunion on Zoom
Wednesday, February 17th
7:00 PM – 8:30 PM (PST)

You’ll all be on mute when you join to avoid noise chaos with such a large group (120+ have signed up).

IMPORTANT: When you log into Zoom, please include your first and last name which will help the way a name badge does!

If you’d like to talk, we’ll just use the chat tool or hand raising tool (or physically raise your hand). When I call out your name, just unmute and you’ve got the floor! Tip: try to keep it short and sweet. Then be sure to mute yourself again after. 😉

Here are a few ideas of what bring tonight so we can have some fun!

  • Pour yourself your favorite beverage (cocktail, wine, beer or mocktail!)
  • Wear some SGI gear that you haven’t given away yet!
  • Share a photo (Lip Sync Contest anyone?)
  • A funny or memorable story (was anyone there when the actual pizza slice was shipped out in the Pizza Box?)
  • Did you meet anyone famous who was visiting? Clinton, Spielberg, Michael Jackson…
  • What creative ways are you getting through this COVID adventure (new hobbies, or getting back to old ones, new culinary talents?)
  • What do you appreciate now after nearly a year of COVID restrictions? Any great ideas to share about new ways to keep in touch?
  • Where are you living and working these days? Who has moved out of the area (and are you buried in unseasonal snow now? Seattle, Oregon, Texas, brrrrr!)

Here’s the basic game plan:
7:00 – 7:30:  Welcome and catching up
7:30 – 8:15: Move to Breakout rooms (or you can stay in the main room with me). NOTE: You can move from room to room, and you will be able to see if anyone you know is in that room.
8:15 – 8:30: Back to the Main Room (share any especially funny or interesting stories from your breakouts)
8:30: Turn off Zoom and watch Netflix!

It’ll be so great to see all of you tonight!

SGI Reunion on Monday, 9/26!

23 09 2016

img_2940-1To all SGI alums!

We’ve got a great turnout expected for the SGI REUNION with all of the sign-ups so far!

Be sure to RSVP so I can get the correct headcount to The Patio.

SGI Reunion
Monday, September 26th
The Patio
412 Emerson
Palo Alto
5:30 – 9:00 PM

Please RSVP at: http://www.evite.com/event/020CHUTBXNQTQE4DCEPGNMNQVNY7JI

NOTE: This is not to be confused with the KIT List Job Networking Event on 10/3! I only had those two spots so I had to grab them — so it may be confusing to have two events a week apart at the same place!
Here’s the link to the KIT LIST EVENT: http://meetu.ps/c/2GMgz/wlG7X/a.

Thanks for spreading the word so we can reach all SGI folks (employees…and consultants like me!) so they know about this year’s reunion.

See you on the 26th!

SGI reunion on 9/26!

7 09 2016

Hi Everyone,

You may already know that the genesis of the KIT List was my personal “keep in touch” email list of my friends at Silicon Graphics.

Many SGIers are still on this list as they’ve moved to other companies. In fact, they’re the whole reason the KIT List turned from my personal email list to a job opportunities email list. It grew just by word-of-mouth to what I jokingly call “72,000 of my closest friends!”
I’d like to make sure we reach all SGI folks (employees and consultants like me!) so they know about this year’s reunion.

I’m sorry! This is not a KIT List event, it’s just for SGI present and past employees, consultants and contractors. However, I am hosting a KIT List networking event on another date, though, on 10/3 (also at The Patio)! Stay tuned for a blog post shortly with the details. 

Monday, 9/26
The Patio
412 Emerson
Palo Alto
5:30 – 9:30 PM

Please RSVP so The Patio can staff up for the night:

Also, please help me by passing the word to other SGI folks so we don’t miss anyone!

See you on the 26th!

Our SGI Reunion is this Monday, 9/22, in Palo Alto! Please RSVP.

Hello Everyone,

For those of you who know the story of the KIT List, it started as my personal “Keep in Touch” (the meaning of the KIT name!) email list of my friends at Silicon Graphics. It grew simply by word-of-mouth to what I jokingly call 71,000 of my closest friends!

But for those of you who are present and last SGI employees or consultants (like me!), I wanted to make sure you knew about this year’s SGI reunion I’m organizing.

Here are the details:

SGI Reunion
Monday, Sept. 22
The Patio
412 Emerson, Palo Alto
5:30 – 9:00

Please RSVP via the Evite at:
http://www.evite.com/event/020CXOF6IQI7M4WTSEPEGRT2ZVCOAU

It’s no-host, so it’s free to attend and you just buy your own drinks and food — or you can be a hero and buy some friends a drink!

We’ll be meeting on the back patio…and the weather is promising to be warm and balmy that evening.

Please pass the word to other SGIers so we don’t miss anyone!

I’m sorry, but this is for SGI folks only, though I will organize a KIT List networking event at another time. I’m just rushing to get this in while the weather is good!

Take care, everyone,

Sue
