    The Upside of Irrationality (same author from the above book)

    I have to unfortunately cancel. I hope that you are able to share the information later to those of us who can't make it. Slides, synopsis, discussion or even a repeat meet.

    Hey I purchased a ticket but don't think I can make it anymore. Can I get a refund from the organizer so the next person in waitlist can get in? Or do I just sell my ticket here? (which seems less fair)

      I just canceled my order and got refund actually. Sorry but this way people at the front of waitlist can get the ticket so it's more fair

      October 16, 2013

    • Andi

      Thanks Lynn!

      October 16, 2013

  • Andi

    As mentioned, we normally don't process refunds, but I will make an exception this one time, due to the high demand of the tickets.

  • Wissile

    October 15, 2013
