Ok, this post is a bit out of the ordinary for me, but I wanted to pass along some information that was sent to me and post it as a “guest-post”.  I will be attending the ONS Summit next week as part of the company that I work for, Torrey Point – Full-Service Network Consultancy, as a paid participant.  I wanted to share this post with you in the case that you would be attending, perhaps we can meet up when time allows.
