I'm here at the IA Summit which officially starts this evening. My first time in Portland - it is raining but was lovely yesterday when I got in. The breakout of the war and all the protesters here, as well as the legion of police in full riot gear - some in our hotel - makes for an interesting backdrop to the conference. So far I've been to Powell's 3 times - and I have barely been here over 24 hours - and had some terrific beer at a small brewpub on 23rd with folks (Christina Wodtke, Peter Merholz, Adam Greenfield, Anne Galloway, Jesse James Garrett, John Zapolski).
I look forward to meeting folks and will be circulating throughout to meet and greet and coerce people to submit articles for Boxes and Arrows.

Happy Birthday B&A
Boxes and Arrows is a year old today! I can't believe it. It's been a great year - I have learned so much from all the fabulous authors I have worked with. I have met (via email and IM) some great, smart people and am looking forward to the next year of cool articles.
When I was asked to be an editor, I never imagined how this little side thing would take over... I mean enhance my life.
