Ladies and Gentlemen -
This afternoon, Randall Thomas of Engine Yard was unceremoniously strong-armed by Jack Frost (you know, Michael Keaton in that cute family movie) into remaining in Washington, D. C. today, causing him to miss our meeting, world leaders to break down and cry, and cute little fairies to commit suicide on grills of speeding, out-of-control Toyotas the world over.?
In other words: Snow has forced Randall to cancel his talk today.? Smalltalk and David Woodward will be front and center, then.?
If you are working on something cool, take a few minutes to plug in to the projector and chat about it.? If you've got a particularly thorny issue you'd like someone to take a look at, plug in to the projector .? If you made something you want to show off, projector.? If someone else has something cool you want to show off for them, in the room or not, projector.? If you've got pictures from your family vacation, stay away from the projector.
Or, maybe we should all get together and build something cool tonight....
There will be pizza and soda.
 - We'll be gentle and helpful, I swear.? We _are intending_ to be gentle
and helpful.? If we seem growly, it's because it's scary standing up
when everyone else is sitting down and staring at you.? Trust me.? When I'm up there, it appears as if everyone is going to kill me on the spot, cook me, and add me as a topping to the pizza.?
