    I know it is still a long way off... But, I will most likely be going to DC by myself and I would be up for sharing a room with anyone to split the cost. Send me a PM or email if you're interested.

    The countdown starts!!!

    Any word yet regarding when to make hotel reservations? Last I heard on the Facebook page, a hotel had been selected and rooms will be $150 per night. (Not cheap, but considering what hotel rooms cost nowadays it's not unreasonable in the short run.) So far, the name and contact info for the hotel has not been posted, nor have any PayPal links for TONMOcon IV registration. What's the latest?

    Two things:

    1) National Zoo has confirmed we'll have after-hours access to the Invertebrate House! Excellent! This will be on Saturday evening; detailed agenda still to come.

    2) There are a lot of places where I talk about TONMOCON:

    - Twitter
    - Facebook TONMO Page
    - Facebook TONMOCON IV Event Page
    - Blog
    - This thread
    - Other threads in this forum
    - Newsletter / Email
    - TONMOCON Article page

    While it's good that there are multiple channels of communication, more coordination is needed across these channels. The blog will likely be "home base" and will provide links to all other sources, and the other sources will link back in. I'll work to rationalize this!

    That's great!! Looking forward to meeting you! We'll need some "hello, my name is..." tags. To be filled out w/ your username. D, can I order some and send them to your address? :smile: We could pre-populate them and hand them out Saturday morning as folks come in (since there's an attendance fee, we'll have a list / check-in starting at 8:30).

    Per this blog entry, the Montys are an opportunity to recognize the TONMO community member "who best exemplifies the spirit of the community, which Monty himself fully embodied." You can read more about him (or even see some of his older posts) to get an idea of what he brought to the community.

    Re: the above...
    I was checking out my Twitter followers, I think I forgot that Monty was an early follower of my account... "Geek of many things..." indeed...
