Before you get all worked up, if you cannot make the event in person, that is still not a problem.  We will be simulcasting the event via Live Meeting.  To register, go here:

Please note that the Live Meeting session will have two way audio enabled, so please take advantage of this.  As a fail safe, I will provide a conference bridge number on an as-needed basis.  I only have 48 ports available so please keep that in mind.

I will be there in person and monitoring the Live Meeting interface as well.  Please stop by and say hello.

    Will this be available as an audio/video archive or stream?

    I really wanted to listen to the Deep Dive session, but didn’t find the info until after the event.
