    Hands down, THE BEST CHOICE for your 1st guest. You have set the bar really high by having Pat on your show. As a newbie trying to navigate the Web 2.0 World, I have already learned so much from Pat & the SPI blog. And if he hasn’t already done it, you should prod him into changing his middle name into “Mr. True & Transparent”. :-)
