I’m honored and excited to participate again this year in the conference!  My session will be one of the Nuts & Bolts topics on Wednesday, February 8th at 1:45pm where I’m currently slated try to get through ten eDiscovery project management topics in ten minutes – the fifth ten-minute presentation in the hour (gulp!). Hope I don’t get Matt Damon-ed! 😉

You can register here to attend the conference, which, in my opinion, is now the best two-day eDiscovery conference there is for terrific speakers and topics! There are over 3,000 people attending!

So, what do you think? Are you going to be the only eDiscovery professional that doesn’t attend?  Please share any comments you might have or if you’d like to know more about a particular topic.
