Seattle It's time for Governing's Managing Technology conference, so we're trading the unseasonably cool and rainy D.C. for the seasonably cool and rainy environs of the other Washington.

Yep, the 13th Floor is heading to Seattle.

Watch the blog this week for dispatches from the conference, which should actually be really interesting.

Meanwhile, if you need us, we'll be, uh, staying out of the rain by surfing Internet Explorer in the Space Needle while sipping Starbucks and listening to Nirvana.

Oh, and we'll definitely be riding the SLUT.

See you in Seattle!
