1: I would like to thank the Communication, Culture, and Technology Program at Georgetown University for their sponsorship, providing me the opportunity to attend this remarkable conference.
2: We went to a conference, for about 3 days. Since it was indoors, we didn't feel the sun's rays. A basic schedule, is on the right. There were coffee breaks, with refreshments that were light. If you haven't already noticed, this scrapbook rhymes. Overall the conference was informative, and full of good times.

4: At the Arlington Campus, of my alma mater, GMU, I learned about things, like broadband and ITU. Where did I learn these things, you might ask. Telling you about the TPRC, in rhymes and pictures is my task. "An invitation is not a command," we were told after panel one. We went to it anyway, and had some fun.
5: Day 1 (9/21/12)
6: Day 2 (9/22/12)
7: The second day, was the most jampacked. With so many panels and topics, choices never lacked. It was the longest day, but perhaps the most fun. We ate Peruvian chicken, and knew more than we did in panel one. The conference was interesting, communication is swell. We learned a lot, and nobody fell?
9: The third and final day, was probably the best, since I understood the topics, more than the rest. Some panels were crowded, while others had seats to spare. It really depended on the topic, and how much people care. Topics included cyberaggression, and hiring discrimination. You never know what you could learn, sitting in on a paper session. | Day 3 (9/23/12)
10: There was so much to learn, in so little time. It's hard to describe a conference, only using rhyme. But this was my attempt, I hope you enjoyed this book. Thanks for reading it, and taking a look. I would recommend this conference, to students and scholars alike. It may be complex in some ways, but it's like riding a bike. In the sense that once you get the idea, it's hard to forget how. You may not understand at first, but by the end you'll be saying wow. We were surrounded, by people from everywhere. TPRC is amazing, considering what was learned there. I learned what the ITU is, as well some research stuff. Being objective is important, but removing all bias is tough.
