    Very cool! Wish I could be there to hear your talk.

    I’m also intrigued that the contact is a man named Rhett Butler.

    Hi Sheryl,
    I think you misunderstand. Rhett has nothing to do with the WCN event. He runs the website and write an article about it. Just click on the link to read it.

    That’s my bad for using an American literary reference as a joke. Rhett Butler is a character in a novel titled “Gone With the Wind.” Clarkk Gable played him in the movie version from the late 1930s.

    Hi Wong, good luck with this. I hear that the WCN does amazing work. Please tell them about your blog and keep the posts coming. It’s a great way to keep your supporters in touch.
