Dear Readers,

SAS Global Forum 2013 is right around the corner and registrations are trending higher than last year—by almost 10 percent! 

It's going to be a lively conference, so if you're attending in person, plan ahead. There won't be a minute to spare with more than 500 paper presentations, 100 Super Demos and the largest poster session in Global Forum history.  And don't forget the networking opportunities.  My favorite is the cool bike-building charity event. 

But what about those of us who can't make it to San Francisco? 

Conference planners haven't forgotten you.  There'll be more live stream events than ever before. Here at SAS, we'll be sharing conference highlights through the SAS Users Groups blog and SAS Users Group Facebook page.  And conversations have already started at Twitter hashtag #SASGF13.

I hope you'll be joining 2000 fellow SAS users on April 28.  If not, we'll see you online. Have a great conference!
