    Hands down fantastic and dynamic speakers, very knowledgeable. Refreshed and learned new research techniques. Great turnout, including a mixed crowd from Portland and Washington.

    Though I'm not in the news field, I still found there to be a lot of good information. Although I consider myself a fairly expert web searcher, there were resources that I did not know of, and some good tips and techniques. I do wish there had been more time...
