    Awesome and inspiring presentation. Great speaker with a well chosen variety of examples to demonstrate his perspective on invention. Truly amazing with a lot to think about. Glad to have been there. Thanks to Pablos for the excellent presentation and taking the time, Paypal/Ebay for hosting the event and Amanda (and the team around her) for making all this possible. Eagerly looking forward to the next event :-)

    I agree with everyone on Pablos inspiring presentation and I'm glad to see hackers involved in solving the world's biggest problems. I'm looking forward to seeing other presentations and meeting other great thinkers ...and techies.

    Pablos was, in my opinion, the most interesting speaker yet in the TechXploration series. He was an extraordinary visionary, and he was able to explain them in an understandable way and with great enthusiasm. Loved it!
