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.
You and me both buddy. By the way the official site is located at: http://confab.yahoo.com/. Though you might wanna include that in your post.
This will be a great event. See you there. Also, the Predictions Market cluster is here:
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.
