(Since I couldn’t both give the keynote and LiveBlog the keynote, I’ve done my best to serve you by including the video of what I actually said and my notes—of what I meant to say—in the LiveBlog replay mode. I hope these are a blessing to you.) ** Please note: Because I was the speaker, this LiveBlog is nowhere near the …
