    I politely disagree on the blackberry point, math is math. Statistical research hasn't changed much. It's not fashion.

    Are Arthur O'Connor's white papers available online? Would love to look through them!

    It was a shame that Gnip was delayed at the airport but the last minute stand in from the audience should be applauded. As for Arthur, even though he had some interesting points and referenced some worthwhile white papers he lost his credibility of being on the cutting edge when he referenced his Blackberry and how old school his was. Sarah from Bloomberg did a great job setting the framework on how Bloomberg is finding its way through Big Data. All in all worth the time invested. Looking forward to the next Meet Up.
