Thank you

It occurs to me that I need to say thank you.  As you can see from the multiple pieces (here, here and here), SXSW was a success.  But it wouldn't have happened without the support of many of you who pitched in with donations that helped me underwrite that trip.  It was a great experience.  But, as I mentioned before, it's an expensive excursion, especially if you don't have someone to hand your expenses into when you return.

So, the donations were not only a help in relieving the financial burden, but they were also a huge vote of confidence in me and the work that goes on in this space.  I hope to continue to live up to your expectations.

Again, thank you to all who donated and made that trip possible.
