Thank you! It was great to see you, and I hope you enjoyed the conference.

That speaking gig for me came about because they had seen me at one of the library talks I did thru NJAN. So thanks for that as well. ;-)

I'd love it if you shared that on the NJAN message board. I keep saying it's not what happens at the panel/Q&As, it's what they can lead to, but I don't think people believe me - or if they do, they think I'm the only one who's gotten invitations as a result :)

Why don't you start a thread on it: "Benefits of NJAN?" Then everyone who has had positive results can chime in. I'm pretty sure it's not just me!
