    Chris is an amazing and entertaining speaker. I wish he had tied in to Lean Startup topics a little more, but his story was quite inspirational and I definitely learned a lot.

      I had the same thought, but I enjoyed it tremendously. The LS takeaways for me were: Don't build product until you have a marketing channel, use pre-orders before investing in stock. Pretty standard stuff, but the application was really interesting.
