Busy fellow! I'll be around there somewhere, but no clue yet where exactly. Except, doh, I just remember I need to get back to Sean about my panel! Gah. I am soooo far behind on life.

Martin Edwards said...

Hi Gerald, you'll be missing all my panels, but I do hope to get the chance to say hello to you!

Gerald So said...

Martin, I might make your Sunday 10:00 A.M. panel. I left Sunday open because I'm not sure right now how long I'll get to stay. In any case, do say hello.

Bill Crider said...

Be sure to stop by after my panel and say "hey" if you get a chance. I don't know what I'll be doing (other than my panels) yet. I'm not very organized.

Will do, Bill.
