(A splendid time was guaranteed for all)

A big shout out and thanks to everyone who came up to say hi and give props for Newstalgia.

Sometimes we work in a vacuum and don't really know if we're getting any kind of message out to anybody - sometimes we get into that "one hand clapping" thing and it can be hard to shake. I really appreciate all the kind words.

And I also want to say how much I enjoyed meeting everyone at my first Netroots Nation Convention. An amazing batch of people, all under one roof - good conversation, good vibes and great thoughts. I came away with a ton of ideas and I have all of you to thank.

Just remember, I'm only as good as the company - so if you've been liking what I'm doing it's really because I like what you've been doing.

I won't stop if you won't stop - and we'll do it all again next year.

Stay sane,


Can you help us out?
