I just got the artwork for the BloggerCon invite from Bryan. The front looks so awesome I can't believe how cool it looks. Of course now I see I have a bunch of work to do on the text for the back. It's supposed to be loose, but not that loose. Heh. Also, to be sure you get an invite, sign up for membership on the BloggerCon site and say Yes to receiving bulletins. That's a guaranteed way to get an invite.

Schpiels like this make Larry Lessig one of my heroes. And it's curious that Stanford made him move his site off campus because a Presidential candidate was a guest.
