Hi Jermey. I'd love to make it but there's a panel my old mentor Bernard Weisberger is chairing at the same time and I want to see it. Sorry.--Rick

PS: Anybody out there comes across news at the convention please email me:

Thanks Rick -- it's kind of you to even consider dropping by, since I know how busy you are.

Ahist -- looking forward to finally meeting you in the flesh.

By the way, any idea whether the bug that assigns random future dates to comments in the "Peer review" sidebar is in any way fixable? It's quite irritating, since that's the easiest way to track discussions....

Heh, I wish -- the service is offered by a site named Storago, and the guy won't respond to e-mails or texts.

I suppose I'll pursue other options, but so far none appears immediately forthcoming. The template designer has begun work on updating all her templates for Blogger Beta, so it's possible that that could come through, at which point there's an in-house widget for comments I can use. But until then, we seem to be stuck with what we've got, unfortunately.

Fondly wish that I could be there. Send me lots of money and I'll do it. Bank money orders only accepted.
