Close readers of Kirupa’s blog might have noticed that a kF member would be visiting him earlier this week. Though no one was able to guess who it would be, I really did meet up with him!
After getting off of the subway, I made my way towards his dorm and met him outside. He was probably glad that I wasn’t wearing a Kirupa.com t-shirt :sure: as he gave me an excellent tour of the campus. I was also shown around several research labs.
We mainly discussed MIT and CS, as that was the point of my visit, but the forums/site/blog came up more than few times. Kirupa has a really neat Macromedia-themed water bottle from a few years ago!

Just in case anyone was wondering, Kirupa is every bit as cool in real life as he is on the forums!
