  1. Understanding that this comment is very late, but this kind of preview and or summary was very helpful. Ideally, this would be posted to the SOA Forum as well - or at least have a link established. Ideally, there would be current information made available here as well. For example, where is the news about Issue 323? It was odd to find the contents and very nice cover photo under the "previous issues" tab. Understand and appreciate that you might have a lot on your plate to make these informative and bimonthly posts. Thanks.
