When Debra Kaufman joined the Creative COW editorial staff back in March of 2011, she arrived just in time to give us the great coverage of NAB 2011 that so many of our members read, enjoyed and commented on.

For IBC 2011 in Amsterdam, we flew Debra over the Pole to The Netherlands so that she could file her reports for our members regarding the many things she saw, and the announcements made, during IBC 2011.

In our Library you can find Debra's reports that she has written, which are located online at:
