Particular thanks go out to Jacque McIlvaine for handling the administrivia; Sarah Kim, Maureen Jennings, Marsee Henon, and Laurel Ackerman for marketeering; Adam Witwer and Marlowe Shaeffer for handling my sometimes clueless questions; Genevieve d’Entremont for making my ramblings into readable copy; Sarah Schneider for turning this into a real book; Brady Forrest (and Jen Pahlka, even though she’s not really an O’Reillyian) for the speaking gigs; and my editor, Mary Treseler, for putting up with me and for shared stories about dogs.
