The Big Thank You Post

Wow, Bar Camp. So thoroughly successful and just finished up the numbers and we came out just about right. I certainly know why I never wanted to become an accountant. A quick breakdown of the expenses: Food was by far the most expensive (sorta) at around $1150, breakfasts were cheapest as there were less people […]

You Say The Damndest Things Right When You Wake Up

Tantek says I need press coaching, I think I need sleep. Got interviewed by Daniel Terdiman for CNET a couple days ago and managed to drop a couple answers that might need a little clarifying.
