Hi Blaine,

[ apologies for my super late reply; June turned out a very hectic and
  turbulent month for me, with a rather big and tiresome move, and an
  unwellness that followed it ]

Thank you indeed for the kind words, and I very much agree; we plan on
holding the conference online this year, and continue having at least
an online component for future years.

Thank you, noted!

Thanks.  I, too, think the extended Q&A sessions worked really great,
and we had several sessions that continued well past the end time of
their main talk.  I definitely hope we have more of them again this
year as well. :)
