I think that is a valid concern and the conference design has ways to input into more than one Track, while at the same time trying to preserve continuity to be able to get the Tracks' work done. I don't know if the perfect balance has been struck, but it is something that is recognized. In terms of obtaining information, it is intended there will be a final report of the conference, which will have information on all of the Tracks.

I worry about people attending the conference being stuck to one track only. It would be nice to be able to change between the tracks. There are some tracks that I would find good, but I might find others to have information that I might also consider essential.

I'm really glad that you posted this Jim, it has helped me to realize what I am really coming there for, I will try to do you all proud and do as good of a job in contributing to this as I can so that it is a powerful experience for all of us. I think that this is quite in line with all the experience I have had in my life so far and I think that you may find that I have much to contribute. I think you all already know that or I wouldn't be coming would I? Thanks, Jim

For the Choices track, people might think about what Meta Services is doing in Phoenix. It is really pretty amazing. Their website is good at, but I don't think it really does justice to what they have done. Jim Gottstein
