I want to start working on this in advance, but would anyone be up for a meetup in Portland on 3/14 or 3/15? There's also the possibility of Seattle if Portland won't work, but LOOK AT THAT SIGN. I can drive and host drunk people. I can also get drunk and sleep on your couch.
I'm happy to be the point person on this, so feel free to e-mail me at email@example.com and I'll be glad to give my number to GTers as well.
