Congrats.

FYI, though you're not going to be surprised ... I was at a reading by Neal Stephenson this week and his response to the question of what he's reading/recommending was Bad Monkeys.

Outstanding! Congrats, Matt. You may be amused that Fool on the Hill came up in conversation last night.

How utterly awesome! I can't make it to the ceremony to clap and stomp for you, but I will certainly urge others to go. They put on a good party for their winners.
