NETIP Annual Conference 2008

NETIP is having its annual conference from August 29-31. It will be a gathering of 1000 south asians in Boston. I've never attended this event before, but it promises to be exciting. I am moderating a healthcare panel. Its a very well organized event, and meeting young ambitious people is always an energy booster. Here are the fun highlights of this conference.
