What an excellent article... I'd like to thank BlogAsheville for doing so much to help Steve Shanafelt with the piece. I've been wanting to do a meetup but my schedule is so loopy. At any rate, congrats for helping to corral we wild few into one outstanding issue of Mountain X.

Yep. Screwy,
You've definitely hit the big time. That was one hell of a spammer! I look to you and the rest of the Asheville Bloggers as guidance counselors in building the Boone bloggers. There are only 4 that I know of. I encourage everyone to embrace this technology and run with it...
