    This was another Excellent meetup. "hiDentify" presented a fascinating algorithmic solution to semantic search which has definite advantages for finding products more quickly than existing search engines. "Google Fusion Tables" was presented by Mano Marks, who did a great job showing application to geographic data.

    New developments in user-friendly data interaction; basic SQL driven data visuals (e.g. maps, graphs) and a product-comparing semantic search engine. Want to try both.

    Inspiring. Google Fusion Tables is a very interesting project and could be a very handy tool for data mining. Could save us lots of time to implement a visualizing tool ourselves.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
