Talking with strangers

I spent most of last week at a great conference for networking and naturally stayed in that mode through the weekend where most strangers I encountered reacted to me like I was nuts.
I wasn’t interacting much differently than normal except that I had a slightly higher than normal willingness to engage with strangers in the usual places one encounters them when out and around. They were having none of it–although I did see a few more smiles than usual. My weekend was a little more pleasant too.
