    I was excited about the conference from the very beginning, but I’m more excited now that you have released the line up. The Man Repeller is one of my favorite because the girl is funny as heck and of course I’m looking forward to meeting Yuli Ziv since she wrote Fashion 2.0 which is like my blogger bible.
