The conference is only a week away!!!!! I have introduced the participants, and the Program over the past couple of months (there's a little bit more to come). Today, we'll go into the night....the dark side! There are three evenings during the meeting, thus three evening events for participants.…

I looked around on the wiki a bit, but may have missed it -- are there any plans for doing webcasts or the like so those online can participate (or at least view) the conference remotely? Seems like ScienceOnline conferences could (should?) be the trendsetter on this front.
