I hear it's going to be cold but the location, I'm told, is breathtaking. I won't be snowboarding but will be dutifully sipping coffee and cheering on those who will. Been working hard on a sample story to illustrate my main argument about storyboarding. Sleep optional these days but having a ball.
Looking forward to meeting the good people of Banff and all the attendees. I'll post a post talk report here. So watch this space.
