  11. I hope to see you (all) in Seattle. Outstanding!

    Ps. Off topic... I'd love to get your new blog posts (or at least a snippet of the new post w/link to direct traffic) emailed to me via feedburner/google. I'd sign up if you had that option available here. (Hint hint!). I'm already stalking you proper on FB and Goodreads :)
