    Tim Anglade could also talk about the NoSql concept a little bit rather than just about his schedule. I think Ben Hendrickson used general diagrams and went into unnecessary details. Still beneficial on some subjects, but could have been better.

    This wasn't my favorite meetup, but it wasn't a dud either.

    I loved the energy of the SEOMoz guy, but I remain skeptical of anyone assert that C/C++ is the way to go in this day and age. Focus on the algorithms, I suppose.

    The French guy was interesting, but I would have liked to see more detail of the individual projects that fall under the "NoSQL" umbrella. At the very least, I do intend to check in with the NoSQLTapes site (or whatever he called it).

    Enjoyed Tim's presentation. Ben's was over my head, but then I don't use any of these tools.
