I know you've had a lot on your mind this past week, so I understand if you've forgotten that CPW is less than 3 weeks away! More importantly, did you remember that the registration deadline is this Thursday, March 25th?
I feel there should be a dramatic chord (or small mammal) to drive that point home. If the W3C weren't meeting down the hall I'd even be tempted to break out the blink tag.
CPW is an enormous event. It's natural that you or your parents might still have some questions. This is my first CPW, too, and I can tell you that the sheer quantity of options is daunting (in a good way). Luckily the level of enthusiasm all over campus is equally impressive, and you have an entire Admissions office here to help with any last minute items.
I'm sure you've been to the CPW website. Did you notice the new schedule search feature? Between that and the iPhone app we hope to launch soon, you should have ample tools to start planning your weekend.
And parents, I hope you've gotten the message that there's no shortage of activities and information for you at CPW, too. Heck, we have a whole page just for you, plus at last count there were 171 parent-friendly events in the schedule.
If a visit to the site or a call/email to us can't unravel the mystery of CPW, the only thing left to do is go to the source: MIT's CPW gurus Lauren and Jennifer. They'll be webcasting live tomorrow night beginning at 10pm EDT; check your email for details (or email firstname.lastname@example.org / comment below with your email and we'll get in touch after we verify your admission status). We'll be using backchan.nl, a creation of MIT's Media Lab, to let you ask questions, or vote up/down other's questions, beginning at 9:30 and continuing live during the webcast. Even if you think you have all the answers, why not stop by and get to know your fellow classmates?
So please consider your memory jogged:
I can't wait to see you at CPW!
