I am honestly -- no really -- pretty excited about these two sessions. I think they will be well attended and provide some good info.

What other sessions are LINCsters interested in?

Ric Cantrell said...

New Orleans, man. I'm looking forward to whatever sessions we get to wear masks with feathers and dance in the street.

Hi everyone,

I've attended one of Adam's presentations in the past. He does a great job and it should be really informative for LINCSters. Wish I was down there in the Big Easy with y'all this week, but I'll be paying attention through your posts.
