The BWC is taking 2012 off, but we expect to be back in 2013. Thanks to all of the participants and presenters who helped make 2011 such a success!
The good news for conference presenter Wil Hylton is that his article on bioterrorism was the cover feature in the NY Times Sunday Magazine last week. Unfortunately, he's informed us that unforseen professional obligations have cropped up making it impossible for him to join us as planned on Saturday. We expect to have him back next year, and we apologize for any inconvenience to our attendees!
Keynote speaker Steve Almond has a nice short piece in Salon that some of us old-timers can probably relate to:
