    Great meet-up. I resonate with Murphy's comments. Thinking about data, visualization, and the itunes model for revenue making.

    Thought provoking and lively...makes me feel that there is alot going on behind the scenes than the public is aware of to further the match between educators and technology

    Strong panelists. I'm digging into DataPalooza, pondering the iTunes model, and thinking about visualization as a tool to promote adoption by parents, teachers and students. I'm sure that more will come to mind when I go over my notes.
