Joyce Alves is listed in the Antitrust panel, but couldn’t attend this year. It’ll be Stefan, Brendan and Brian.
The mayor of Vilnius is listed in the Awards Ceremony, but he had to leave for a short trip. We have his message, though, and Sergei and Agne to make up for Remigijus.
Ted Shapiro is listed at the Collectivisation panel, but got delayed at the European Parliament yesterday and, thanks to a combination of cancellations and delays on three different airlines –even though he bought tickets for every possible route to Vilnius last night – is currently still in transit. He has a crazy plan that may just work. Fingers crossed we’ll see Ted later in the day – though probably, not on this panel.
Erica Carter will replace Kayla Page on the UGC panel.
Sophie Goossens couldn’t attend this year, and was due to be replaced by… Ted Shapiro, who is currently somewhere at a gas station in Poland. So maybe we are lucky, and we’ll have Ted – or maybe we will have another person (must be Pete’s karma!).
Everyone else seems to have made it in one piece, and we will be blessed with great content throughout the day.
Changes for the program of second day TBA tomorrow morning.
