Issue 13

I'm about to head to San Francisco to speak about CSS Grid Layout at An Event Apart. If you will be there be sure to come and say hello. There will be speaker tables at lunchtime so you can find me for a chat, but you don't need a special table with my name on it to come talk to me. I'll be around for the whole event so come chat about layout ... or anything else!
