I met the Meebo team at SXSW in 2008 and, being the uppity entrepreneur, I asked if I could stay in touch with them...

Even though they were super busy, Seth would take a call over the phone when my startup was about to get acquired or when we were trying as hard as we could to raise money in late 2008.

When I was playing a game of Underground Assassins in 2011, nobody knew my name. So they went by my t-shirt's logo - Meebo. Honestly, six years after they began, people still remembered their logo.

I still find it amazing how Meebo for a period of time inhabited the social consciousness. Like art, I'm glad to have experienced it, and being in the bay area, felt a little closer to it.

Off topic, but what is underground assassins? Google is not helping.

Sorry, typed in haste. Undercover Assassins, see this: http://www.sfgate.com/cgi-bin/article.cgi?f=/c/a/2011/09/12/...

I'm guessing - and I could be wrong - but based on the fact that its a real world thing - its likely the game where you get a bunch of people to play at hunting/assassinating each other as they go about their daily life.

The objective is to tag enemy players and become the last player standing.

I've played assassins before, which I think is what you're describing. I'm wondering if Underground Assassins is a variation on the game, or just a different name.
