Abby and I represented CHAOS at the NYC Lightsaber Battle in Washington Square Park on Saturday night. Stack Exchange provided event planners Newmindspace with 35 Jedi robes to give out to 35 lucky Jedi-in-training (Padawans, if you will). Abby and I also handed out exclusive Star Wars-themed Stack Exchange stickers to a couple hundred of the hundreds of people in attendance. The battle itself was a ridiculous amount of fun for everyone there, including the spectators. It was a real only-in-New-York experience to see people from every walk of life playfully unite to live out their inner Jedi fantasies.
Keep an eye on Newmindspace’s website for future events. This type of all-inclusive fun is what the world needs more of. Also, the world needs more stickers (we ran out).
