    I was unable to attend but I don't think there was anything "new". If there had been, there would have been a lot more buzz on the web.

    My hope was that work would pay for it (I work in a hospital lab) but there was no interest in it (other than my own) and the budget is extremely tight.

    I believe there is going to be something free in July but I have to verify that. I think I read it somewhere. If I find the info, I'll update this post.

    Sorry I could attend :( ~ JT
