About 110 people came to the beautiful Hyatt Regency in downtown Atlanta, and asked great questions. Some of the people I talked to in person had come from as far away as Tennessee, Florida, and Alabama. It was especially cool to meet, in person, Terry Kearns, whom you know as "tk" on the discussion groups. Terry has been enthusiastic and supportive of Fog Creek since the very early days, and was always our best beta tester.
Downtown Atlanta is one of those places where, to put it politely, the sidewalks roll up at 5pm, so I was worried about finding a decent place to eat. I checked Yelp, which is fast surpassing Chowhound in usefulness, and found Room, which had opened recently, and happened to be right around the corner from our hotel, and had excellent food.
Gotta go catch the plane to DFW. Talk to ya soon!
