One page to rule them all… Here’s a single page that links to all of the individual session posts.
A very important note: NONE of the participant comments should be assumed to be direct quotes; I did my best to capture the essence of what was said (with no intent to make any one look good, bad, etc). If you were a session panelist or keynoter and see something that’s obviously wrong, please drop me an email or leave a comment
Also, all notes are raw; none have or will be proofed… take ’em or leave ’em, or, buy the DVD for $99! ;->

Thanks for doing these summaries, Tony. It’s great to get such a detailed view into the conference.
Tony: Several people asked me to send them notes from the conference. You’ve saved me the effort. Great job! Now I can focus on the tough commentary!
