    The best session so far. Fabulous work by the organizers bringing engaging speakers. I would love more "unfilmed" sessions full of secret tricks and tips like this one :)

    Excellent presentation (especially since there was no powerpoint). It was great to hear how you apply CS when you're in-house in a large and cantankerous organization. Since I also work in large orgs, it was nice to learn some tips on dealing with the inevitable jockying for position on the home page and other facts of corporate life. Thanks for sharing!

    Great speaker, informative talk. Esp. in how to deal with politics. That's something not often discussed, but so important.

    If street parking is gone, there is a lot across the street on 35th for the library branch. Five bucks all night, though.

    No parking lot, but I've never had a problem finding street parking.

    Is there parking at this building or is it paid lot parking/find your own?
