I apologize for being busy (re: prizes) and not communicating clearly when I took the "official" photo. Which was Sunday, after five hours sleep, with my nephew in tow.
I'd be happy to pass the message board idea on to the planning committee, since they're meeting next week.
To everyone who built and brought figures, thank you! This is totally a community endeavor. I just try and organize the moving parts.
Just to be perfectly clear, I wasn't trying to point fingers or lay blame. I just see an opportunity for a more central place where we could all give each other the "memo" as to what's going on in a hectic convention. I think the layout was awesome, the sig fig photo looks awesome, and I had a great time interacting with you other CCers. When you step up to handle things like the photo shoot, however you choose to get it done is fine with me; I don't think you have anything to apologize for.
