Happy New Year everyone.

One of our questions on the evaluation form asked people to rate KOKOPELLI. One of the themes we got in the responses is “What is KOKOPELLI?” and “Where was KOKOPELLI?”

Apparently we did not do a good job making the Southwest Fox schedule helper applet from Dave Aring public enough on the Web site, in our email announcements, and the RSS feed. You might not be aware that we had it loaded on the kiosk computer we had set up at the registration table. The majority of people who used it gave it a high rating, which is good. What is not good is many people did not get to take advantage of the tool.

Looking on the conference Web site I see it mentioned once on the News page. This is where the only link is. I am hopeful we will get a second chance from Dave to better promote KOKOPELLI. If he does, I promise we will make it more apparent how to get it, and where you can find it.

Southwest Fox 2008 is this year. Only 287 days until we meet in Mesa!

SECOND chance! SECOND chance? You had me at “I hope…”. As long as there is a Southwest Fox Conference; as God is my witness, I shall never go hungry, er, wait. I mean… As long as there is a Southwest Fox Conference, there WILL BE a version of KOKOPELLI available. The pressure is on you now, Rick, to come up with better ways to publicize “Koko”. …Dave
