Welcome, Keith! Should be a great week! One of the great strengths of jQuery is its designed ability to be extended. Looking forward to the discussions and to reading the book.

Welcome Keith, I am excited to hear what you have to say on jQuery, I am relatively new to the whole javascript scene and jQuery is so intrinsic to modern javascript it will be great to hear how it can be manipulated.
