Don’t even THINK about missing TechExpo 2016, Superhero!

Yes, we’re talking to you. We know what you’re thinking:

I’m just too important! I need to be at my desk, superfingers poised over my superkeyboard, ready to avert the next superdisaster!

But you also need to connect with superbuddies! And replenish your superknowledge! And learn to think outside the superbox (the corner into which you have probably painted yourself)!

So get on that shuttle tomorrow! Make that early tomorrow!

Oh, yeah, about the shuttles: There are multiple shuttles making the rounds to all three locations (American Tobacco Campus, Parking Garage III/Hock Plaza and University Tower), so they should be leaving each venue every 20 minutes or so from 7 a.m. (starting at the outlying locations) through 5 p.m. (last shuttles leaving the Washington Duke Inn). Everyone who rides a shuttle gets a raffle ticket for a very special raffle!

If you’d like to volunteer, go to SignUpGenius to get involved. (Yeah, we know. Why wasn’t that site called SignUpSuperhero?) We still need (and you can sign up for as many slots as you like):

  • Convener (who introduces the presentation or panel), Forest, 8:50–9:05 a.m.
