This is one of the cooler ideas I've seen in a long time. Looking forward a lot of the presentations!

Welcome back Tom. Glad to see you back here on the forums. Hope everything is going great with your magic and outside of it as well. We all look forward to any future releases here that you have with theory11 (or any other company).

-Casey

Just as an added note on this, they DO accept Paypal for registration. Consult with the EMC site for details (or contact them on their site), but I know the question was raised previously. Very excited about this! I was able to see a sample live video stream a few days ago, and the quality was comparable to what you are familiar with here at theory11 - and it's LIVE. Very impressive.

I'm thinking of an EMC presenter. He is no Harry Potter, but he's an amazing magician and consultant. In fact, he consulted on the Harry Potter films - as well as the television specials of Derren Brown and David Copperfield. His book on magic featured an introduction by Daniel Radcliffe, star of the Harry Potter films. Which presenter am I thinking of? First correct response wins a free pass to EMC 2010.

I'm going to miss a large section of the presentations, but that's okay because I'll get to view them online and get the DVDs! I'm pretty excited for this, too.
