Andrew and I are very excited about the opportunity to meet David Koenig and (hopefully) Jason Surrell at Reading Trout Books in Celebration this weekend during MouseFest. This is not an official MouseFest meet, but you can’t pass up an opportunity like this.
While we are ensconced in MouseFest-type stuff, we will do our very best to keep you updated with posts and pictures. There won’t be another Daily Figment until Wednesday. Don’t forget to explore some of the other Geek-Out links on the right-hand side. We’re MouseFest bound, ya’ll!
Here is what is on the agenda for us on Friday night.
