Hello, hello! And a very happy Friday to you. We have exciting news! (Seriously; we've been bouncing in our chairs here at SiWC Central, and a couple of us, who shall remain nameless, have even fallen out of them from chair dancing a little too vigorously. One may even have scared an innocent dog with her shriek of glee.)  We're absolutely thrilled to reveal the identities of our keynote speakers for #SiWC14. They are Friday morning: Peter Rubie Friday evening: Sarah Wendell Saturday morning: Cory Doctorow Saturday evening: Chuck Wendig Sunday morning: Laura Bradbury Sunday afternoon: Hallie Ephron Thank you to each and every one of them for taking on the job. I can't wait to hear what they have to say. If you haven't already registered, remember that only our full registration package includes all the keynotes. If you've registered for another package and would like to upgrade, we can do that! Contact us at registration@siwc.ca. Stay tuned!
