Allied Media Conference
Click here <http://alliedmediaconference.org/program/fullprogram> for descriptions of 18 workshops, panels and film-screenings that will give you a glimpse of how sweet the AMC will be this year.
This is only about 30% of the conference content so look out for a lot more sweetness in the coming days.
The conference this year features several tracks-- think less "railroad tracks" that would route your interest in a particular direction and more "animal tracks" that end up criss-crossing each
other repeatedly as they travel in unexpected patterns
