    All of the above, plus an hour of phone or IRC-based discussion, to be scheduled at mutual convenience in 2013, about an open source project you are involved in, or interested in, or thinking of launching, etc. (I'm also happy to get your thoughts on what should go into the second edition of the book, if we have the conversation while I'm still writing.) Alternatively, our conversation can be about what the reward for this pledge level should have been.
