    I really enjoyed Nick's talk. It's very helpful. Now I know what it is like to give 1 minute idea pitch, what you should convey. It is especially helpful when he did a demonstration right there turning an audience's more technical type statement to a more vision-driven statement. He also said that you can contact him if needing help with pitching ideas.

    I also appreciated very much the insightful comments by Scott Henderson.

    Once again, thanks to the organizer for organizing such high quality event.
