Have you heard about MILOfest? It’s a Mac-Lovin’ Lawyers Event Nov. 8-10

MILOfest 2012 is Nov. 8-10 in Lake Buena, Florida.

MILOfest is a conference for Mac-Lovin’ Lawyers and their families. Building on two year’s of success, MILOfest is geared for attorneys interested in Macs, iPhones, iPads and anything else bearing an Apple logo. Attorney Victor Medina hand-picks the speakers and program topics sure to please both new and the most loyal Mac-Lovin’ Lawyers:

“It’s ruthlessly egotistical of me (I know), but it also means there’s some consistency from year to year to the topics and the speakers….you can plan on hearing from Brett Burney, Mark Metzger, Amin Rahmani, as well as some fresh faces. We’re going to cover topics like Kreating Killer Keynotes and the Zen of Dealing With Idiots. We’ll also have some dedicated iPad/iPhone time, which I perceived was needed last year. Excited yet?” –Victor Medina
