Wakey Wakey!!

Ack! I venture from my cave to do a little digital missionary work (read as
contract work for companies) and come back to the home land to find this
mailing list ravaged by the passage of time (like 2 weeks). I can see you
have been taking your soma....tsk ....tsk

I'll think of some profound or foolish to say about storytelling this
afternoon. Hmmm maybe I'll just say something profoundly foolish....

in the mean time here are some events that may interest some of you ...
