If you are in Washington DC, make sure and come by and join in the API conversation, and say hello.

I find myself talking APIs in Washington D.C. more than any other city, except for San Francisco.  

Which is a good thing!  Its one of the most important places we need to be having API discussions, so its good to see the energy from folks.
