Hi Dave,

Belated thanks for stepping in to keep TPM going .. having been away from
web development for eighteen months, I don't have anything novel to offer
in terms of a presentation. My last contract required nothing more
technically complicated than being able to deal with HoHs, map statements,
and being smart about caching. It was interesting, paid the bills, but
wasn't really cutting edge.

I have been working on learning Go, and I'd love to present on that, but I
can't do that until February -- that will give me enough time to chew
through the subject matter and create a decent presentation (working title:
How Far I Got With Go In A Month). If there's no talk for January, perhaps
we could just meet up for supper/beer instead.
