If you are in or near New York Wednesday you may want to stop by Stich to see SEMPO's first 'Great Debate' - and I am on one of the sides (has not been determined since I have both backgrounds).
There will be a solid turn out of search people, so could be a fun event. I am sure there will be people there blogging it for those who can't make it.
Stich is at 247 W 37th St and the event starts at 6:30 - come early and grab a drink.
