Thanks, thats good info for those who don't know who the Professor was.
Just one last update to this thread. We are almost full for this event, so if you've been thinking that this is something you'd like to attend, now is the time to express interest. Our reservations are being taken at firstname.lastname@example.org. I know this will be appearing in a few media outlets over the next few days, and I wanted the pf.org people to have first shot before we get overwhelmed.
Btw, thanks for all of your support.
