Today is the last day to complete the latest quarterly Riak community survey and get some swag: http://basho.com/quarterly-riak-community-survey/

More importantly, RICON all the things! It's the end of October, which means it's time to gather around some great speakers (virtually or in person) and talk distributed systems. There are still a handful of tickets available if you can join us next week: http://ricon-west-2013.eventbrite.com

Mark Phillips has captured all the Riak (particularly 2.0) goodness that we'll be talking about onstage: http://www.themarkphillips.com/2013/10/14/Riak-2-dot-0-and-riconwest.html
