Amen and amen. Things could hardly have gone better (except if more of 
you were there), and the venue was absolutely gorgeous. A huge thank you 
to all of the people that worked so hard to make me look good. ;-)

In all seriousness, my complaint is that there were so few of us there. 
We clearly need to a better job of articulating to our committers and 
their employees the value of this event. I will be attempting, over the 
coming weeks, to begin to articulate this, in various places, probably 
starting with my blog, but also looking for other places to preach the 
gospel, and will be looking for your help in doing this.

Start working on your budget folks there to free up some dollars to send 
you, and also to sponsor the event. Please see 
for the specific ways that we need your help leading up to Austin.
