I’m not at COLLABORATE 09 this year, and right now, as Spring reminds those of us in Portland why it’s so lush and green in the Summer, I think I’d rather be in Orlando where it’s in the mid-80s and sunny.

Chet, if you can get “collaborate 09” trending on Twitter, I will bow and kiss your had at OOW 09, assuming I get to go.
Oh, and apparently, Dan was acquired or something. Maybe we’ll let him muse here, if he wants.
