Sounds good Kojo!
Just realized I still haven't voted! So, gotta stop to vote on the way home. If I'm not there BY 6:25, don't wait for my Lightning Talk. I'll do it later in the evening.

You doing a lighting talk on this? If not, I'm willing to do one on Tufte's 1-day seminar. I took it in March. Got all the books too!

Wanted to put this on everyone's radar.
Some of the founding team (myself included) are from Houston's Culture Pilot. I can do a lighting talk on the conference and related ideas if there is time tomorrow
looking forward to your lightning talk, Javier!
I'd LOVE to hear more about this. Lightning-Style!!
