Fall Northeast Roadshow Summary and Resources
Another Northeast Roadshow is done! Thanks to all of you who joined us as we visited six venues across the Northeast - we had our largest total audience ever. Your interest and support makes this possible, and keeps us heading back out for more.
Speaking of which, Jim and I are busy planning the Winter Northeast Roadshow. It's shaping up to be in early- to mid-December, so keep an eye on our blogs for announcements and registration (sometime in November.)
Thanks to the gracious support of our hosts throughout the Northeast, especially KnowledgeWave in Vermont, RPI and the Rochester Public Library in New York, and the Riverview Psychiatric Center in Maine!
A special thanks to Brian Johnson, who was able to join us for our visits to Albany and Rochester to give great presentations on Robotics.
