Hello CSS-DEV members,

I'm writing to follow up my email last week about a workshop that I'm  
doing on campus. It was brought to my attention that I may have  
improperly used this mailing list to promote a personal event, and may  
have also misused my U email address in doing so.

Ironically, I've tried to be exceptionally careful about keeping my  
iPhone projects completely separate from my employment at the U, so  
I'll be the first to admit that last week's email was rather careless  
in that context.  All I can say is, I wanted to extend a discount  
offer that I was providing to another group to members of this list,  
so I felt that the use of the list made sense in that regard.

But to be perfectly clear: my workshop is not a University event. If  
my University email signature gave anyone a misunderstanding about  
that, I apologize.

Finally, the discount I'm extending to you still applies despite my  
communication about it via my U email account.  And I'll also note  
that the discounted price of $99 provides you admission at-cost, so  
I'm not trying to profit from my University colleagues. I'm just  
providing an at-cost opportunity to attend an event that might  
interest web folks on campus who are already familiar with using web  

If anyone has questions about this workshop or my communications about  
it, please email me at [log in to unmask]  Otherwise, I hope my  
workshop web site already made it pretty clear that the event is not  
endorsed by the U, nor sponsored by the U.  So, sorry again for any  
confusion that my @umn.edu email (or the use of this list) may have
