Jamie, I think I speak for all of us when I say we're glad you're staying.  I know for many Niners, you're one of the reasons we stay here.

I was feeling simlar thoughts last night--thinking about C9.  The tech will always be secondary to the people for me, and that's the way it should be.  One of the reasons I enjoy C9 is that amidst all the tech zealotry, we often get glimpses of the real people.  I'm not talking merely that we meet Mr. Office-12-PM or Miss WPF.  We are reminded that these people have hopes, fears, families, dreams outside the otherwise cold world of tech.

As long as C9 is tech plus people, I'll be here.
