    I loved this event--thank you all very much for coordinating. The deck that Paco showed was chocked full of citations that he used in his speech. I would like to read those reports. I was wondering if Paco would be willing to share his slides so that we can flip through the reports that he cites. If he does not, I completely understand, it is his IP. But, I thought I would ask.

    Awesome event--awesome speech--very riveting.

    Hi Lynn, the Eventbrite site says Sold Out. Does that mean its full? I had RSVP'ed on Meetup but didn't see until now about the Eventbrite RSVP.

    Tom, the event starts at 7pm PT

    The eventbrite says "7:00 PM to 8:45 PM (CDT)" which then goes into your calendar as 5PM, PDT. Then, the above time says 6:30, which I'm presuming is PDT. So, fair to say this starts at 6:30/7PM PDT?
