Closing Ceremonies

Well, another festival is now history. A huge thank you to our wonderful guests this year and to everyone who stopped in to participate or just enjoy the discussions.

All panels and chats will remain available on the site.

Dealer Room

The Dealer Room and the Freebies will remain open through the end of the month. We will formally “close” the Dealer Room on September 1st. So if you have not had a chance to check out some of the special deals and offers, you still have a few more days to do so.

Random Trivia

Total number of unique visitors for Sunday: 731

Combined Traffic by Geography:

56.3% visitors from the United States

11.6% visitors from Canada–once again, for some reason, the demographics broke Ontario (3.1%) out separately from the rest of Canada. I don’t get it.

10.4% visitors from the U.K.

5.1% visitors from…um…Russian Federation? I really hope this had nothing to do with some of the borderline political discussions today!

3.7% visitors from India

2.8% visitors from Australia

The balance is just listed as “Other” so we are left to wonder.
