The last day of the Republican National Convention is in session, and while Donald Trump is the headliner, we're most interested in hearing from Peter Thiel, the billionaire tech investor. We're assuming Thiel will be speaking around 9:30 pm ET, but if we get a better sense of timing we'll update that here. Once he does start, you can follow along on the liveblog below.

See you soon!
