gainesvilleI haven’t posted in ages per the Mr. Ed Rule.  For those too young to remember the talking horse of early-60s TV, the theme song says, “Mr. Ed will never speak unless he’s got something to say.”  Sorry, Wilbur.  I just didn’t have anything to say, and didn’t wish to waste your time.  But, now I’ve got something worth writing about, and a gift to share.

Last year at this time, I wrote about Bill Hamilton and the excellent, intimate e-discovery conferences he convenes in central Florida at the University of Florida, Levin College of Law.  The UF campus is in Gainesville, and to be honest, it’s not an easy place to reach unless you’re an alligator or live in Charlotte, Atlanta or Miami.  I fly to Orlando and drive two hours.  So, you’ve really got to want to go to Gainesville.  And, thanks to Bill and his distinguished UF Law E-Discovery Project, I often do want to go there.  So should you. Here’s why:

Bill has generously allowed me to make you, dear reader, my guest at the fourth annual EDRM E-Discovery Conference on March 30.  Free, on campus or via the webcast, from anywhere.  Free is my favorite price.  How about you?

Free wouldn’t mean much if what you got wasn’t valuable.  This conference is always a good one.  Check out the agenda.  Bill has countless friends in the e-discovery space and when he calls, many make the trek to Gainesville to support this fine event.  It’s going to be good.

Now, let me sweeten the pot.  There’s an included breakfast, lunch and reception.  Need more?  This morning, it costs $97.00 to fly to Gainesville from LGA or JFK (via Miami) on American Airlines.  From Washington, D.C., how about 83 bucks nonstop on United?   It’s balmy in Gainesville, folks, mid-80s!  To get there from the forty degrees colder Boston, a flight is just $97.00.  At those prices, the free admission pays the airfare, and you get to hang with and learn from a great bunch of people.  Did someone say, ROAD TRIP!?!?!

To get free admission, go to the Conference registration page and locate the link for “Enter promotional code,” in the lower right.  Enter the code CBall16 and marvel as all the registration options change to “Free.”  Don’t hesitate.  Use it now.  Hope to see you there.  We can thank Bill together as we enjoy our free lunches.
