Once again, LibrePlanet afforded me the opportunity to interact
with people in the flesh that I usually only interact with via

in order to attend other talks (or give my own.).
I am very grateful to the staff, volunteers, and attendees that
made LibrePlanet a success and am looking forward to next year.
