A couple of quick notes-
I'm fine and I was not hit by a train- unlike this unlucky gentleman from the Boston area named Jack Daniels. (FWIW, I'm not that old yet, and there's no "s" at the end of my name). Thanks to those who checked to make sure it wasn't me.
Also, noon today, round two of Shmoocon tickets go on sale. They won't last long.
I can't promise anything specific yet, but there will be some form of road trip from the Boston area to Shmoocon.
