Wow. One more reason I regret not living in the Bay area to attend that
Congrats on that deployment, Elizabeth. I hope we get a chance to talk
about that when you're down here for SCaLE.
Your contributions to the community have always been much appreciated,
and I imagine it's especially gratifying to have them expand like this
to a global scope. Well done. I look forward to learning more.
