  Hi folks! Check out our latest edition of Open Media Boston. Didn't 
plan to have a double edition back-to-back with a previous double 
edition, but I got a really nasty cold after returning from the Block by 
Block conference in Chicago that kept me (and this regular blast 
communication) out of circulation for a bit over a week. Getting better 
now, and happy to get the news out to you all as usual. Cheers ... 
Jason, OMB.
