Going west

I will be away from the internet for a day or so as I’m heading out to Chicago for C2E2; being a lover of adventure, and a hater of airplanes, I’m taking the train, and stopping over in my home town of South Bend to see some folks. In the meantime, I’m handing the keys over to Melinda Beasi, who will be providing a guest review for your enjoyment tomorrow. If you are going to C2E2 and you want to get together, e-mail me at the address on the right or DM me on Twitter.
