SABR 38 Now in the Books

The Annual SABR Convention for 2008 is now in the books. Registration reached 632 on Friday, making it the fourth best attended SABR convention of all time (edging Washington DC by 1; Washington will likely regain the all-time attendance mark in 2009).

It’s going to take us in the office a little while to gather our thoughts and do our write up, but perhaps you’d like to read what others had to say. Here are links to blogs and newspaper articles that I’ve uncovered so far.
