    Great speaker but intro info was too long and interruption in the middle to tell people not to infiltrate the cubes at HP was strange

      +1 also the interruption during Q&A was distracting and I lost a great question for the speaker but overall the meetup was very good, learned a lot tonight.

    Great topic! Good luck with your book Mario.....teachers love the idea of gaming in the classroom. Mario, you and your colleagues are ahead of the curve. (I saw the Luminosty folks speak about their research this last weekend - interesting data!) If you need a teacher type to endorse this venue of learning let me know.
