    Thanks to Ken Taylor for an excellent presentation last night. Also thanks to the 115+ people who made it over to Seibel despite the winter weather.

    I think it provided some interesting conceptual overview, but I would have likes a larger, more practical sample of data. Speaker did a great job speaking, and was good at encouraging questions.
