Come On Down, Up, Over! There's a Rising Tide!

That's right. The Rising Tide Conference is The Place To Be on the weekend of August 25th - 27th. Because I'm rather overwhelmed right now, I stole copied this schedule right off of Maitri's blog. So read on, and then register and come spend the weekend with us.
The following Rising Tide Conference schedule is up at the conference website. Also available on the front page is a registration form, which I strongly suggest you fill out so we have an idea of seating and food requirements.
