Long time no talk. I'd like to submit the following press release for either

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
KANSAS CITY, MO - (October 6, 2006) - KansasFest, the Apple II expo held
annually in Kansas City, Missouri, is pleased to have David Szetela as its
2007 keynote speaker. Mr. Szetela was the first editor-in-chief of Nibble
Magazine, one of the premiere Apple II magazines of the Eighties.
"It's amazing and gratifying to me that the flame of passion for the Apple
II we shared nearly 30 years ago still burns brightly," says Mr. Szetela.
"I'm looking forward to attending KansasFest 2007 and re-connecting with old
friends, reminiscing about Apple II milestones, and maybe sharing some
little-know insider anecdotes."
Szetela began his career as VP of Operations at MindCraft Inc., publisher of
Nibble. Next was a seven-year stint with Apple Computer, building and
managing Apple's Evangelism department, the Worldwide Developer Conference
series, Developer University and several award-winning print and multimedia
publications. Szetela's Apple career included three years at Apple's
European headquarters based in Paris, where his responsibilities included
management of European Developer operations and Apple's online services
Szetela is now the founder, president, and CEO of Clix Marketing, an
Internet marketing agency that specializes in the management of clients'
paid search advertising campaigns. An experienced speaker, Mr. Szetela
promises a fascinating inside perspective on Apple and Nibble for attendees
The 2007 convention will be held at Rockhurst University in Kansas City,
Missouri, from July 17th through the 22nd. The days following the opening
keynote will consist of informational sessions, the HackFest programming
challenge, the KFest Kookout, and more. The convention officially concludes
on Saturday with the annual Vendor Fair, at which attendees buy, sell, and
trade new and used hardware and software, featuring official vendor
representation by Syndicomm, The ByteWorks, Nibble Magazine, and more.
