This site has been quiet because I've spent long nights working on our company's new, ultra-powerful Web publishing system. Unfortunately, the silence will continue for the next week and a half: I'm going on a much-needed vacation to the U.S. West Coast.
Drop me a line if you're in San Francisco, Portland, Seattle, Vancouver, or anywhere in between and would like to meet up somewhere. I'm also looking for suggestions on good record stores, restaurants, music venues and anything else cool to see. This Chicagoan has never been west of Kansas.
