UPDATE: Internet was maxed out today, so I gave up and just listened and took paper notes, which I’ll put into a coherent type blog post tomorrow or this weekend. I have a lot of links to post at the Tech Blog, too. So much INFO.
Having issues with Twitter, but hopefully someone in this room has access and will share their mini-notes.

Free – relinquishing.
