I nominate myself at that guy for a while, either until it is obvious that I am
not doing squat (like if I move to WA), or there is a chicken coup and I am
overthrown. I'll work with BR the PR guy to decimate my ruling to the masses.
Here is my plank: I'll pick from the many offers we have for venues, which
normally is a total of one. In the event that there are none, we meet at Hyatt
in Rosemont, which is in the burbs, so someone better come up with something for
July 10 in the next few days.
If HostedLABS is on schedule, they are first on the list for Aug 14.
vote early and vote often.
