Hi everyone, and great to see everyone who came out last night! Really enjoyed the discussion, and I hope that our efforts will continue to better frame this slippery buzzword and/or career path!

My slides, including some slightly cleaned-up discussion notes, are here:

Also, thanks to all who filled out the title survey! We had 26 respondents, and the results are fun to look at! A PDF file of the visualizations is here:

And if you're interested in seeing how I put together that automated visualization, my slightly buggy thrown-together R code is here:

(you may need to install any of the plyr, ggplot2, and tm packages, if you hadn't previously installed them.)
