Nina’s retrospect: A big thanks to all who made it to the kickoff webcast today! We had relatively few technical problems, all things considered, and almost everyone who was signed up to speak was able to do so; seventeen of the eighteen sessions were represented, and we miraculously finished on the dot of 1600 gmt. Thanks for your patience when we had audio issues, and thanks for being there at the right time and sticking to the admittedly frustratingly short amount of time you were allotted.
