    Terrific presentations by all. My sincerest thanks to Jim Barrood for getting Simon to come East and present! His presentation was an eye-opener for many. For those who couldn't make it last night, when the video of his presentation comes on-line, in my humble opinion it will be worth watching.

    Thoroughly enjoyed the pitches. Simon's talk was very insightful and provided a rare "back door" glimpse and approach into big data...although he refused to divulge his "secret sauce". Thanks Morris Tech, John Carini and Simon. I really enjoyed the evening and felt very welcomed by this group.
