I've set up an "in the press" page on the site under "about" which is
still in development.
Also set up a Google alert under "air jaldi summit" to catch any

The press release announcing keynoters and a few speakers is being
circulated for comments/criticism. I should have the finished version
ready to go out tomorrow and posted here.
