  1. Thanks. My link does go to the November archives for the site (only one post for November), so I figured that linking to the site itself wasn’t necessary.

    It looks like it should be an excellent conference. I don’t expect any of it to be taped, and available through Yahoo video, but I’m really hoping that some of the presentations are.

  2. I wish, John.

    I do know someone who will be attending Wednesday, and hopefully will write a blog post about it. Be happy to hear your thoughts about it if you attend.

    The Washington DC event in January sounds interesting. I may have to see if I can fit it into my schedule. Thanks.
