This is the latest complete program and speaker list. A couple of changes still have to be made - adding speakers to Green Communications, moving a session around, switching Brad Ack to another spot. If you see a spelling or punctuation error let me know but no more editing is permitted. We will have an on site directory with all the sponsors and room locations, attendees, etc.
