Ah, nice. I was near Minnepolis last week, visiting Marc Grabanski in Burnsville. Now in Grand Rapids, at Lake Michigan yesterday.

My name is Mike Hostetler and I'm the founder & CEO of appendTo (http://appendto.com). We are a software consultancy that specializes in HTML5 and cutting edge web technologies (jQuery, Responsive Web Design, Node.js, etc).

We founded the company 4 years ago as a 100% virtual workplace and have bootstrapped our way to explosive growth.  Along the way, we've been privileged to work with some amazing and progressive organizations that have accepted our completely virtual work environment.

During an internal strategic review earlier this year we identified that our work style was one of our cornerstones of success and starting in January I am shifting my role to developing that part of our company.  

We've hacked work and have realized some success and now we want to share that with others.  I'm excited to be a part of this group and hope I can share that with you all here.

Please let me know if there's any way I can help what you're doing!
