OOW Special

In case you didn’t notice, last week was OOW week.

I personally stayed at work and delivered some great dashboards (I thank you), but some people (um hum, Christian) had a whale of a time in sunny/foggy San Francisco (that place where they used to host the Americas Cup!)

Luckily, there are those who went, and who blogged (how did we manage in the pre-Internet era?)
