I’m sure they will do a great job with the panel to provide excellent content to the delegates.JV:  This sounds like it will be an exciting event and I look forward to hearing how it all unfolds for you.  Good luck and I wish the best success.  One last question…why Prague?FGA:  Prague is an absolutely beautiful city and is right in the heart of Europe.  Most eDiscovery events are held in the UK, so this will be an opportunity to bring a whole new audience to the issues and trends.  Thank you for taking the time to speak with me.eDiscoveryJournal Contributor and eDJ Group, CEO – Jason Velasco
