As you know you can see everyone who’s registered for the conference, but I highlight 4-6 participants every day as this may be an easier way for you to digest the list. You can also look at the Program so see who is doing what.

At the conference, he will co-moderate the session on Art and Science: Visual Metaphors and lead a workshop where he’ll teach how to Paint your blog images using a digital tablet.
