    Great talk and I look forward to future events. As a freelance consultant and jazz bassist I was surprised to hear David reference their amalgamation as the future of employment. My hope was that he was going to steer me onto a more practical path. For those interested in learning more about taking an idea to market check out the new Business Model Generation meetup (

    I would have loved attending this, but I'll be out of town (and country). Is it going to be video recorded?

      It'll be sooner rather than later. We have to run it by David first.
