IAFE is on a roll. Charles Smithson wrote a great book that, perhaps, changed my life (a long time ago) called The Doomsday Myth: 10,000 Years of Economic Crises .

I think he might have some interesting things to say, if that's his perspective. The agenda looks interesting as well.

And plus, if Tyra's going to be there...

It was a good event; seemed like a good crowd to network with.

Tyra wouldn't leave me alone. I had to actually have them call security because she insisted on sitting next to me and would not shut up. :D
