Hello all,

Michael Kay is not able to make it to our evening due to a conflicting 

So, we need to continue the search for a keynote speaker.

I know the team had some other ideas, but something Steven said recently 
about Michael Sperberg-McQueen caused me to wonder if he might be a good 
next person to ask.

Steven, do you think that your interactions with him would be sufficient, 
or would you advise looking elsewhere?

If elsewhere, can people please post up some ideas of people along with 
rationale for choosing that person.  It would help if the rationale 
explained A) how that person connects to the theme of the evening as 
expressed in the call for proposals, and B) why that person is well-known 
enough to attract more attendees. 

If we can't find a keynote, then we could just do 8 sessions, or expand 
the 6 sessions to 20 min. each.
