Thanks to Ev, Meg, Paul, Matt and Derek for dreaming up such a fun playground for me personally and professionally.

I hope this post won't get too long but when you are weeks behind in posting then there's nothing like a lightning round post like this one. First up, the geeky stuff:I accepted an offer to join the RSS Advisory Board two weeks ago. I know what you are asking yourselves, 'Can I get a Friends and Family discount on angle brackets and rel tags?'
