Let me try it. I have a District the size of Djibouti and the travel is killing me.

I completed all the new steps that the government requires for non-profits to register now (CCR, ASAP, Grants.gov) and I successfully completed the first draw-down ($57K) using the Grants.gov system to receive my operations funds. Also had my site visit from the Economic Development Administration policy geeks and I have my marching orders for the new fiscal year (FY 2009-2010) that starts July 1st.

I miss the Twitter time — but my investigations stuff has been constant and unrelenting. The AWC SBDC blog finally migrated to WP and the Twitter feed is chugging along – about 650 followers now.

I will see about getting my Economic Development District into more SM stuff — first using ConstantContact to build constituents the old-fashioned way.

Thanks for the ping! I will be in Bay Area later this summer and I will see if you have a sec for F2F.

Ciao!
