What's happening in the mobile space right now is really exciting to me, because it's so much more than a one-way platform associations can use to push out content.

During the last week of November, millions of Americans will be celebrate another Thanksgiving holiday in all the traditional ways: turkey, stuffing, pumpkin pie, the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade in the morning and professional football in the afternoon.

This year, I will be spending Thanksgiving in Toronto at CSAE '09 as a speaker, blogger and enthusiastic participant, and I could not be more excited.
