If you think you hit the wrong place, no worries. I just updated the theme of the site to better fit in with the Mind Camp logo. Oh, and also because I didn’t think anyone would miss the periwinkle hyperlinks. I mean, I was correct in that assumption, right?

Well, that didn’t take too long at all. About two weeks after tickets went on sale for the second Seattle Mind Camp, all 200 tickets sold out. We want to thank the attendees for getting the ball rolling towards a successful event. The attendee list is impressive, and I personally look forward to meeting (or, in some cases, reconnecting) with everyone.

For those wanted to get in, leave a comment on this post. If anyone cancels, we will use the comments here as our waiting list.
