I realize I'm out of geographic range, but is this a free event, and is Jessamyn on-board with the whole pimping-it-in-metatalk thing? The site wasn't too clear on what the details were, and she hasn't really mentioned it, so this seems a little weird if well-intentioned.

Yeah, I wish I had time to do a proper meetup or anything really but this is a fly-by, I'm speaking for like 45 minutes and flying out that same evening. I'm hoping I can wake up early enough to see Peter speak. My talk is at 11. I don't know if it's a free event either, I gave up clicking through the registration system after four pages or so. Any info needled?

It appears to be free - I don't know if you can register if you are not a UM student, staff, or faculty member - you need an internal login and password.

Are their windows, like on the Today show? Maybe some of us could gather outside with signs that say "WE LUV JESAMIN" and the like.

That was a joke son, though my shitty spelling elsewhere kinda ruined it.

The event is free. You can register if you are not a UM student, staff, or faculty member, but you'll have to get in touch with a UM librarian.

cortex, the reason I posted this here is because the University Library hasn't done much to promote the event, and I think there are several MeFites attending U-M or in the Ann Arbor area who would be interested in attending.

Too bad I'll be traveling the opposite direction to Chicago this weekend (Printer's Row book fair! w00t!) or I'd be there.
