@ddraper No. But string theory probably does explain why at NECC we are going to meet folks we know who we’ve never actually met before…
@dmdanker That IS good for a daily statistic, but the key is contributions. Getting folks registered is very good tho for sure! :-)
@jameslavere Yes, I’ve used Jing but mainly on the Windows side. I love Skitch for screensnaps on the mac side - love the Flickr integration
