Thought I'd drop by the old neighborhood and say "hi".
dyork: Pass along my birthday greetings to young Chloe!
MichaelCrawford: Thanks for that. I hope the value to others outweighs the personal pain of dredging up enough of the memories to put it to "paper", as it were. I think those values clearly must - the new media you've used offer a potentially vast new audience that can self-organize around your work in a way not possible with real paper. People who need and can benefit from what you've written will find it.
raph: Don't despair of people "leaving". Advogato can't be all things to all people. You've built something extraordinary here, enabling community and relationships that are invaluable. The glass is at least three quarters full here!
