"Every so often it makes sense to emerge from the trenches we dig for a living, and ascend to a 30,000-foot view, where we see, to our astonishment, an intricately interconnected whole," said Paisola. "It is amazing to see the synergy that happens when connected with like minded people from around the globe. This is why I am so honored to be invited to attend this years event," he said.
