    Without any idea on what Fusion Tables are, Kathryn has showed me what is is, what it can do and how i can use it at work within 1.5 hours. I use Google spreadsheet often and export the tables to MS excel to manipulate the data. I'm glad to be introduced to Fusion Tables. Thank you, Kathryn and GTUG.

    Didn't know much about fusion tables, so this was a pretty good and simple introduction to a very useful tool.

    Kathryn was well prepared and it was a nice presentation. I would like to see more talks on more complex topics rather than these tools which already have good documentation online. I missed MOngol db presentaion, but that is what would interest me to know how do they approach these engineering problems and what's their solution. I know no one is going to reveal their true recipe, but still can influence more users to move to their products.

    Very interesting demo and technology.
    I do miss the business case, like: why was it developed, what is the target group, and how to monetize on it.

    It was a pleasant preseantation given by Kathryn. Fusion Tables is a nice entry into cloud computing by Google but is in early Beta withut much documentation but with great potential. Product is so new and drew lots of questions without answers (tabled). Gogle will need to accelerate all momentum with this to compete.
