Thank you three (and all the other OSCON peeps) for the work behind the scenes.

It was a fascinating session – seemed like plenty of quality feedback. I share your pain in the “I wanted to see three things at the same time” rathole; I’ve been in that exact same part of a conference planning meeting multiple times before, and it’s always hard to do. 8-)
