This blog has never been overtly commercial but it would be remiss of me if I did not mention the upcoming Essential Magic Conference, that I think has its heart in the right place. It is being organised by Luis de Matos, Marco Tempest and myself.
It is magic's first digital conference with live broadcasts, on-demand downloads, question and answer sessions and if you register now you'll even get a set of DVDs containing all the conference videos mailed to you when the event is over. It's a non-profit venture and the ticket price is a bargain. It takes place on 15th, 16th and 17th of July.
It's important to note that this is not a skype conference. All the speakers will be there in one location and all lectures broadcast in high quality video and shot on multiple cameras.
You can find out more at the Essential Magic Conference website. And check out the 60 second intro here.
