    A very perfect design for the GIS application and data surveyor applications. Easy to use and implement. Looking forward to use Google Fusion Tables in my some of application.

    I thought it ironic that a company which started with a great search engine asked everyone to introduce themselves to the group one at a time, row after row. I think the whole process took 15min. Let's try using people's word cloud descriptions of their interests, comments the put on the groups different walls, etc., make a histogram of that word cloud, take the top five and put them up on big signs around the room, have people introduce themselves within those groups, and people will drift between groups naturally.

    Too cool. I am looking for a project to use it on soon. Even if it doesn't add anything the "Wow" factor is sure to impress.

    Good information. Very interesting. The type of talk that generates ideas for future projects.

    Given the number of people at the event, I thought having everyone introduce themselves took too much time, though.

    I was walking out with a Microsoft Black Belt. I asked him what he thought. "It's a lot easier than I expected." Lest we forget. Mano was excellent, not explaining the difficulty, but explaining the usefulness of what can be done with maps. Learned a lot. Chida is moving large rocks to get that many people in the room! Good job!

    Very informative. The event head a great speaker, and I learned quite a bit about Fusion Tables and how to get started using them.

    This event was a five stars. I am new to the area coming from Columbus, Ohio. I enjoyed learning about integrating Google maps into my website.
    Google people were so friendly and they pampered us with pizza and delicious food. Thank You Google for doing that!!

    I can't disagree! Currently NovaJUG is still having it on their schedule. We might have one in April 7th on Android and Game Development. I requested a speaker from Google, yet to confirm. So many Android Meetups, and I am trying to bring some interesting discussions. Bear with me !!
