Are there any downloads available for the presentations? Somewhere in the back of my mind l seem to remember something being said that there would be downloads available?

We're planning on offering the presentations online, but it will probably be after the conference is over. We'll keep you posted!

I believe everyone survived a very jam packed day of presentations at IL conference today. Very solid meat to chew on throughout the day. More Gemütlichkeit may need inserted as we are hanging around Oshkosh for the evening looking for things to do.
