Again, a top notch slate of speakers this year.  And once again topics timed to the sesquicentennial.

Last year I did some live micro-blogging from the event (Tweeting as it was).  I actually used it as a trial for techniques used later during the year at some of the sesquicentennial events.  I’ll try to continue that practice this year, and improve upon the delivery.

So if you are down that way, be sure to look for me in the audience.
