Greetings, Riak world.

It's time to say farewell to July. There will be many opportunities to see the Basho crew out and about in August, so I've included the next couple of weeks below, and you can always visit http://basho.com/events to see what's coming to your community.

Don't forget that the granddaddy Riak event of them all is looming: RICON West in San Francisco in October. Grab your early bird tickets while you can, and expect to hear more about the speakers very soon.
