When I checked my Google Analytics statistics a few minutes ago, I was a bit shocked to see how many people had visited this site in the last 24 hours.

If you happen to live here – and want to hang out – please get in touch with me at perlman(dot)alan(at)gmail(dot)com. I will be in town until November 4th.
