  1. Hey Dave,

    In case you’re adding to the list: I’m participating in a panel called “Socially Conscious Geek: Makin’ Money While Doin’ Good” – and it’s moderated by Leif Utne who’s from nearby Bainbridge Island.

    Fun to know there’ll be so many Vancouverites in Austin!

  2. I’m not organizing it, but I’ll be paneling with Alex Jones on Social Sentinels: Managing Antisocial Behavior In Online Communities (votes willing, of course). Woots for panels from the great white north!

Whatcha think?
