    In general I think the 10 min allotment was too short. 15min might have worked better. Also, for next time, it would help the presenters to have a time clock on the stage.

    I really liked the presentations. It was great to see the people behind these awesome projects in one room. I would have liked a short Q

    Juan et al- thanks for your feedback. Agreed on your comments on the ManifestAR presentation. We were not so well prepared for the short length of the format. We are, however, a very new, very active collective and this was the first time we tried to comprehensively represent the large body of work we have done. This was not the right to format to take this on. We found the evening thoroughly inspiring nevertheless. Stay tuned...

    Unfortunate that the presentations were often cut short when the speakers had more to share, although part of the problem was lack of editing on the part of some very enthusiastic individiuals. Overall, very exciting and educational to hear about everything from culturally transformative technical innovations to more lighthearted engines of silliness.

    Amazing, inspiring to see so many 'creative coders' come together and share knowledge and projects. Thank you!

    I think the moderators really need to work the agenda out better with the speakers. It seems that some of the presenters really didn't have a 'single' demo of any one focus and instead showed their entire portfolio. While there was a lot of impressive stuff, it's too much for the audience to absorb.

    For the AR speakers - seriously... rehearse your presentation beforehand. Presentation skills go a long way to telling a good story, and the night kinda started off downhill with the way you bombed it. Your work was impressive, but just you did not package it up into a nice narrative.

    For the moderators, seriously, you gotta cut a person's show after the allotted presentation time. Presenters will keep going on and on if you let em.

    As always, Jer Thorpe and Theo Watson delivered great presentations. Really nice work by Luke Dubois as well.
