    I thought the speaker was excellent. I really liked his thoughts on triage. I think there should be more of it in the early stages of a case. I really enjoyed seeing some old and new friends.

    Ovie Carroll's presentation, although mostly an intro to digital forensics, was excellent. His professional observations really make the presentation much more than an intro. Really good advice. Also, I had some good discussions with the other people at the meetup. Thank you.

    This event was a lot of fun. It was great being able to finally meet people in person who I have communicated with via electronic methods for sometimes years at a time. Ovie was an absolutely fantastic speaker.
