Some things of note:
1) IF Month starts tomorrow. Wooo!
2) To add to our sprawling empire of free internet services, we now also have a forum. (Thanks, gwillen!) It is located at http://ifmonth.proboards.com/ and will not be for anything official, but may be useful if you want to discuss story ideas or technical questions.
3) Thanks to some of the nice folks of the IF community, we've gotten some internet publicity and there are quite a few people on this list that I've never even met before. This is great! However, the people who are not in Pittsburgh are probably not all in the same place. I highly encourage non-Pittsburghers to put up a few copies of the poster — available at http://instamatique.com/poster.pdf, or http://instamatique.com/poster-flat.pdf if the first one doesn't work — to acquire some locals. The forum will also have a section to facilitate meetups.
