I loved how everyone mentioned their names, libraries and blogs at the beginning, but unfortunately the recording is a little unclear. Anyone who participated, you might want to leave your blog URL here in the comments for those of us listening after the fact. I would like to be able to look you up. :-)

Cheers,
