Sunday

We'll be highlighting much of the programming in coming days. In the meantime, here are some reminders:

Registration is here.

Tickets to ALL of our keynotes are going fast (and keynotes do not clash with ANY other programming: there is no chance that when signing up for one you will miss anything else). Here, again, are the links to our other two terrific panels:

Editors and Authors: Cheryl Klein and John Green - click here to read about it, click here to register.

Nosh with the Nerdfighters - click here to read about it, click here to register.

We are also holding a drawing for a signed one-of-a-kind collection of all 10 American-Edition Harry Potter books, donated by Scholastic and J.K. Rowling. For pics and video of the set, click here.

REMINDER ABOUT OUR TWITTER CONTEST: We are extending the Twitter contests for our Keynote presentations. If you twitter the following phrases you or the registrant of your choice (so tell your friends to do it) may win a free ticket to the corresponding keynote. (And do not wait to see if you've won to buy a ticket: if you already have a ticket and you win, we will refund you; the winners will be announced the week before the conference). Copy and paste these into your twitter:

#1:
Michael Goldenberg, screenwriter on HP5, is keynoting @leakycon2009! Go here for details: http://tinyurl.com/d9ba8g - more @leaky!

Yippee for a schedule! I’m super excited, but I do have a few annoyances… The main one is just that it’s difficult to tell what time things actually start on the schedule; it looks pretty, but it’s hard to read. My other frustration is just that there are so many things going on that it’s hard to pick!! On the whole, that’s a wonderful thing, but I’m actually genuinely peeved that there are really cool things during the live pottercast as well as the afternoon wrock concert. I mean, those are things that nearly everyone probably wants to do, but they’ll be forced to miss out on (my opinon, of course) some of the most interesting discussions of the whole conference! Oh well, I’ll get over it. on the whole— YAY LEAKYCON!!!!!
