    Since I bought the tickets on Oct. 24th,nnWhy are the remaining time and tickets for students and founders keeps changing? It said xx hours left and ## tickets left. But after a day or two, it comes back and says xx hours left and ## tickets left? are these tickets really on sale for a limited time or just trick people into buying tickets?nnWhy is the guest speaker changed? The speaker was Scott Painter and now Jason Nazar?nnI was looking to return the ticket but cannot find out how.
