    The presenter spent too much time on initial slides containing one, if important, point: that RAM is already cheap and will continue to get cheaper. I think he spent an hour circling this observation. When it came to the presentation proper, he didn't discuss Scala or distributed HPC; there wasn't much of a review or tutorial. Finally, he coded a simple Hello World which nicely distributed over a small computer cluster.

    The presenter was competent and fun, but the presentation could be compressed to 15 minutes instead of almost 2 hours. People started working on their own things...

    At MIT, allow extra time to find the room. Make sure to enter the Stata Center at 32 Vassar Street opposite the sign for 43 Vassar Street. Take the elevator (under a sign saying "Alexander W Dreyfoos Building" to the fourth floor (if you find yourself instead in the Gates Building part of the Stata Center you will need to walk to the other end of the buildling to the Dreyfoos elevators). Turn left out of the elevator and then right, through double doors, straight onto orange carpet, then right.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
