I’m sorry, but it looks like Sunday’s Open Brainstorm event with Martin van Creveld is not going to be as open as I planned. Thanks to corporate bureaucracy, it appears that we’re not going to be able to increase our current limit of 100 participants to 500 until sometime next week.
Emails have been sent out to a) the Annual Brainstorm members and b) the May Brainstorm members. Members have 24 hours to register for the event. If you haven’t received an email – and please check your spam filters – email me tonight and let me know if you would like to attend. On Saturday morning I’ll post how many open spots remain. Those remaining spots can be claimed by those signing up for c) the June Brainstorm or an Annual membership.
If there are any spots left after that, they’ll be first come, first serve after I post the link on the blog about 15 minutes before the event. I’m sorry that it’s not possible to provide for any more seats, but we’ve been trying to order the upgrade for over a week now and it simply could not be done. We will keep trying, but at this point, we have to assume it won’t happen before Sunday.
Transcripts from the May session will go out to May and Annual members late tonight; I’m still cleaning it up. A transcript from the open event will be sent free to all May/June/Annual members, and since there will be people who won’t be able to attend who were planning to do so, we’ll make it free for a week for everyone else on the Castalia store.
