Greetings Once Again!
It is December 1st (just barely, but more on that later), and as promised we have news! So let’s get to it.
First off, the new site. The wonderful Tanshin designed a snazzy new site which the overworked OHB is frantically trying to get working as we speak (which is why this is going out so late). That won’t be out till tomorrow though, but trust me: it looks sweet.
Next up, what many people have been asking, “When is Mysterium 2012?” Based on feedback from the survey (most of which you can still answer by the way), Mysterium will be held on the first weekend of August in Seattle, WA. That is, August 3-5 2012. So start requesting time off and such if you need to do so (we hear if you live in Australia, you need to buy tickets for these things last week o_o).
In the hopes of making it easier for people to plan ahead, the first weekend in August will henceforth be the official Mysterium weekend. So go ahead and set a recurring event on your Google Calendar, because it ‘aint going nowhere.
In other news, Falling Man Group is in need of an official logo! This isn’t a contest (like the Mysterium logos), but if you are a graphic designer and have an idea for a logo, shoot us an email at email@example.com. We may even be able to swing some compensation for your time (but no promises just yet). Read more

Good news everybody! This year during Mysterium there will be a live video interview with Rand Miller. We are accepting questions from anybody in the community who has something worth asking. While we will take questions that come up during the interview, any questions you have now should be submitted here so we can be prepared. Even if you are going to be at Mysterium, please submit your question in advance. You will be able to ask it to Rand so don't worry.
There have been several important updates to Mysterium dates including registration, t-shirt orders, hotel reservations, and more. Also, there is a vital procedure that needs to be done if you are planning to stay at the hotel for nights outside of the 5th and 6th. The steps are detailed in the update post.
