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.
