Hey Shauna,

Where are you thinking?  

I may be able to wrangle space at the Harvard I-Lab in Allston. The only downside there is no alcohol allowed there. 

@Randall & Ben, what do you think about the importance of beer for our annotation hacking St. Patrick's Day in Boston?

Cheers,
Drew

I think I'm starting to get the hang of it.  :)  The last change on my list (for now) is to modify the annotator UI so that a clicked annotation causes the viewed annotation to appear and stay until a button is clicked to close it.  As part of that I'm going to swap out the current X delete icon for a trash can icon, since I think the X can easily be mistaken for "close" instead of "delete".  If anyone has pointers for where to modify the code, I'd appreciate it, though I'm sure I can find it myself eventually.
