Thanks for the cool links and for being part of the conversation. I wish I could quote you all, but I know you have an idea of how much time it takes to make that long link summary happen each week. I hate to let it go, but I thought you’d understand.
So, for 2007, we’ll just tell the story and share the links that you bring.
After all, how DO YOU explain Open Comment Night, if you’ve never experienced it?
See you next Tuesday? I sure hope so.
