    Great presentations. I read Peter's book, "Social Machines" and found it both thought provoking and practical. I'd highly recommend it.

    Hi folks - If any of the attendees have any IoT products or services that you think are especially suited for the multi-family (luxury residential buildings) market, either on a building level or apartment level, and want to talk about it, find me at the meetup tonight - I'll be the white-haired guy in the room. My company, BuildingLink, runs operations websites for 2,000+ such properties, which can occasionally be used as a test-bed for new ideas and products.
