BGO does not have any official boots on the ground at Ashburn this season, but we're close to some pretty good folks who do, so we'll be using this thread to provide updates/insights as we receive them. Please feel free to use this thread to discuss daily reports, news stories, or add your own thoughts, reactions and observations as we go.
