Thanks for the rundown Martinibuster and others. I was hoping to see how different it was than the Adsense in your City show I'd been to. Got the invite for the LA one back in December, and sent it right back and based on their response that there was a lot of interest, etc. assumed I was not picked. Did not get a confirmation until last Friday (the event is tomorrow, Thurs) so had to cancel due to prior commitments as well as too late to get a reasonable flight/hotel, so whoever got their confirmation for LA on Monday... that was mine :). Maybe next time.
