Gee, you'd think they could find better speakers wouldn't ya!  grin

It'll sure be great to see Rick again.

I'm really looking forward to this event. It's NOT isp focused. It's technology focused. Sounds to me like it'll mostly be muni's there.

If there are any wisps in the area you should try to get to this. Might be some great contacts there for you.
