        Thanks for the introduction and feedback, Alan. Am looking forward to
        getting to know you better.

        The survey results are pretty interesting - it seems clear that some
        topics are ones that folks hunger for - regardless of how often they
        hear talks on them and also due to how quickly technology is whizzing
        along (feels like a tidal wave rather than a gentle surf).

        Also, some of the topics really don't have enough substance to them - to
        merit a full session; combining will be important.

        Lastly, some really bear some thinking/interpretation (e.g. digital
        capture of books). Good luck as you plan - with your team - for great
        2002/03 season.
