Thanks for this recap, Marta! By sharing some of the wisdom you gained from ALT, I left feeling inspired and uplifted instead of grumpy and left out that I couldn't go myself. :)

So many good quotes, funny and so true. And that's seriously cool swag, far better than that given any conference I've attended.
