That in only two short weeks that I'll be attending the Hotsos Symposium as a speaker? It's true! If you haven't made plans to attend, you should visit the registration page and reconsider. There are so many reasons to go, besides me being there, that I should direct you to a sample justification that you should send in to your boss. Or your boss' boss. Oh and don't forget about the Training Day by Tanel Poder!
I look forward to meeting you in Dallas!
