Shaenon: That’s right!  For the second year running, Jeff and I will be guests at Intervention in Washington D.C.  Last year was awesome, and we have no reason to believe that this year will be different.

Also, my mother will be attending, and she keeps threatening to show up in costume as Helen’s mom from Narbonic.  Make of that what you will.

Channing: I have reason to believe this year will be different.  I have reason to believe that, while last year was awesome, this year will be awestacular.  Come see us!  Talk to us!  Get signatures on your books and assorted body parts!  You know you want to.  Except maybe the body parts thing, which you might not want.

I note in passing that the Co-Author is playing with colorful pony toys.  I have no idea where that comes from as it certainly bears no resemblance to anything I do in real life.
