      Just realized I still haven't voted! So, gotta stop to vote on the way home. If I'm not there BY 6:25, don't wait for my Lightning Talk. I'll do it later in the evening.

      You doing a lighting talk on this? If not, I'm willing to do one on Tufte's 1-day seminar. I took it in March. Got all the books too!
