Gnomedex Lineup

I may take this year off from Gnomedex. Not that i don’t enjoy it immensely but because i am sick of spending rare sunny summer weekends indoors geeking out. Family and outdoor leisure time is so scant and August is the stretch run before the months of drizzle begin anew. I am always spieling forth for fall/winter confabs instead.

Though i am grateful for Chris Pirillo being a Zhonka Broadband customer, i may not make it this year though i am sure my amigo y amiga will manage to tear it up anyhow.
