  1. It seems to be giving an “invalid ID” for the conference ID. I wanted to watch the presentations while I’m at work, but I guess I’ll just wait for the post-show videos. I hope everything’s going smoothly over there!

  2. Added the webcast videos & slides. The remaining slides will be made available asap.

    Btw, chrisarmstrong, sorry to hear you weren’t able to view the webcast. For us it seemed that it was running ok – or as smoothly as possible with the equipment we had available anyway.. I hope it was available to someone else also.
