Small world.  Many of my friends took classes w/ Paul and I've met  
him a few times (though I doubt he remembers me)... He does some of  
the most interesting work (to me) at the U of M SI.  If anyone is  
interested in organizing a one to three day Drupal Camp in Ann Arbor,  
I'd help put it together.  I'm in NYC now, but still have a lot of AA  
contacts and would be happy to have an excuse to spend a few days in  
Michigan.  Just puttin' that out there...
