Guest availability will vary as responsibilities dictate. Some should be there at least an hour while some are willing to spend most, if not all, of the afternoon with us.
In addition to asking questions through the chat client during the event (available through the applet on BTF's front page or from CoveritLive.com), questions can be submitted up to and through the event by sending an e-mail.
For those that have problems with the embedded chat applet on BTF, a live link to connect to the chat through CoveritLive.com will appear at the start of the event. As a reminder, no additional software or registration is required to view or participate in the chat. The only thing required is a 21st century browser that's capable of, uh, doing, uh, stuff.
