        We don't assume you are stupid.



Three years ago, I got an email from a man named Tyler Ortman. Now, sometimes you get an email that changes everything. This was one such email. "Would you be interested in writing a book about Xen?"

Now, like so many of the things we've done, Chris and I had no idea how much work was involved. there really is a lot more to writing a book than to scrawling out a blog post or two, or a mailing list rant, even one with similar word counts.

But, it's done now, and we would like to celebrate a little before we begin bracing ourselves for the 2nd edition.

The party will start Saturday, the 24th of October, 2009, at 7:00 local time, at the local Computer club.

140 S Whisman Rd
Mountain View, CA 94041

It is requested that you RSVP, (if you find the web 2.0 social networking stuff as confusing and irritating as I do, you can always just email me.)

If you just show up, that's okay too, but it's better if I know how much pizza to get ahead of time.
