Come to Seattle for GnomeDex 5.0 June 23-25

I just registered for GnomeDex 5.0 - Chris Pirillo's annual technology conference. I've never been before, but Chris is a Seattle guy now so it's good timing. It's shaping up to be a great event and I'm especially happy to see it happening in my own back yard - at the same facility as the Blog Business Summit- Bell Harbor Convention Center.

I asked Chris once why he moved to Seattle and all he said was "because it was the best place." I agree.
