    Since I have told way too many people about it, I have to follow through! I will be at the Museum of Art and Digital Entertainment in Oakland, CA, hosting as many people who will show up. Please let me know if you’ll show up so I have a vague idea of what the incoming head count will be. It’s already on their calendar this time (it wasn’t last time until pretty much the last minute).

    I hear there is a rumor that there will be another party at the MADE at the same time, but I was told that we are still welcome to work there and can join the party if we wish to be distracted.
