"Thank you for inviting me to participate in TV of Tomorrow. It was really a fantastic experience all around and very different from the conferences I've attended in the past, in the best way possible. I enjoyed learning about aspects of the business that I normally don't have contact with (but clearly should) and I found the range of topics and discussions was excellent. I'm still thinking about Nathan Shedroff's amazing presentation, one of the best I've seen in years. I hope I was able to contribute as much as I took away."

"I cannot say enough good things about you and this year's TVOT conference. The venue was beyond compare, artistic and functional and funky and the gardens and OMIGOD I *love* Yerba Buena. For real the best venue I have ever experienced. I do realize I am gushing like a GIRL, but I just loved it. The size of the conference was ideal: Not too big. Not too small. Just right. The sessions were perfectly relevant and hit along the major chords of the sector in a way that belies your passion and expertise. And I will just never, ever get over (in a good way) you getting misty over Philo Farnsworth's birthday, your discussions with his wife Pam, and then exclaiming "I am verklempt." WHO SAYS I'M VERKLEMPT? I LOVE IT. J The depth of your passion is genuine and extremely refreshing. I just really loved everything about TVOT. Thank you for including me. Two BIG thumbs up. If I had a third thumb, it'd be up too. Thanks for the putting it together, and thanks for including me. "

Everything ran on-time and as smoothly as a well-oiled machine. Your team is to be highly commended as well. I cannot thank you enough for including me in the Social Media panel discussion.
