Hm. Well, it's not like I was thinking "That Marcus Kellis, I definitely don't want to invite him".
I figured this sort of issue would eventually come up and the best way I can deflect it is to say that if I just advertise on the board, the person being covered will obviously see it and it won't be much of a secret. Plus, it's pretty hard to manage and babysit and nag people. Nobody is stopping you from putting one together yourself. As far as the people that were invited, many of them have some connection to either Johnny or Ken. Some were invited because they always come through when asked and never flake. Some were asked because they are new and had never been asked before. And some were asked just for the hell of it.
If I'd known it meant so much to you Marcus, I would have asked you.
If you (or anyone else for that matter) would like to participate in one of these in the future, send me an instant message and I'll invite you next time.
I'm not trying to be exclusionary with this. It's about giving people something for nothing, so check the selfish attitude at the door.
