Those all sound pretty interesting! One thing I've noticed is how well the APGers title their presentations - lots of bold words, colons and exclamation points! [Note to self - do your presentations, and blog posts, have titles like that? hmmm. I should have named this post Listen! The Experts Speak!!! instead of the boring headline I chose]. Seriously, I am looking forward to attending this conference.
