That’s 45 so far and they usually top out at about 50ish, so, we should be drawing to a close. This is a pretty great list, as usual, with a wide breadth of past present and future movers and shakers. I hote that the CCI folks are also sneakily doing the “couple guest” thing with superteams like the DeFractions and the LeiberRyans and the TelgeRomans. Not that’s I’m complaining, mind you, and I doubt they are either, since it’s more fun with a buddy.
