Congratulations, Elizabeth Colen!

When I saw the list, I said to myself, this list is awesome, and I am familiar with (and love the work of) everyone on this list, except for Elizabeth Colen, John Jodzio and Thisbe Nissen, with whom I am unfamiliar... I wonder who they are and perhaps I should seek out their writing, I bet it's awesome.

I have to admit, Tim, I did some mild stalking and was convinced by the sparkly green star over your eye in your fb photo that we really should have known each other before now. Glad to be acquainted.
