Since Deep Web Technologies will be exhibiting at the upcoming Computers in Libraries conference, April 7-9, they received a number of free exhibitor passes that they’re happy to give away.

If you’re going to be in the D.C. area during those dates and want to see the exhibits for free, send me an email to the contact address in this blog’s about page, provide your name and US mail address plus how many you’d like, and I’ll send you passes. First come, first served.
