Amen. Thank you for helping to fill some of the gaps in my memory from the conference. It's been a joy to sift through your posts and get your take on the various panels and lectures. I was surprised and delighted to read Wendy Rosen's post about the conference as well. XOXO Garth

I think the process and skill are AMAZING, and I hope I communicated that, but I think the objects themselves are aesthetically bankrupt displays of conspicuous wealth. That's one man's opinion.
