    The most down to earth startup story I have heard in many years. The exception that proves the 20 minute TEDtalk rule... I was engaged for the entire presentation... Thanks to Blair for a great choice and to Ryerson staff at the Digital Media Zone

    Professor Stumm was instrumental in helping me and surely hundreds of other students become better software engineers.
