Walter took some pictures which I'll post on the website once I get a 
copy of them.  I hope someone writes up a nice event summary (hint hint).

Thanks, Brad, for the quick post. As was frequently reported at the conference, we all owe Brad (and Amazon) a great big thank you for making it all happen. He was very busy. The conference was very well organized and run very well. (At least as far as we could see -- maybe Brad was sweating bullets!) Paul

Thank-you:

Brad for organizing and doing all the work preparing for the conference, 
and for being MC and keeping everything on schedule and focussed. Brad 
was always first to arrive and last to leave.

Amazon for providing their premier conference room with the incredible 
view, and financing the food, and providing video services.

The speakers for putting time into preparing presentations for our 
education and entertainment.

The attendees who came from near and far, including several who came all 
the way from europe!


My sense is that everyone had a good time (I certainly did). It was fun 
to finally put faces to all the names.

I have to mirror everything Walter said since he beat me to it. :) Amazon surpassed my expectations when my second line manager, who attended several of the talks, told me to just expense everything. This conference wouldn't have been possible with out each of the speakers and attendees. Talking to an empty room is no fun, nor is staring at a blank screen. So, while I'll gladly accept some praise, we're all responsible for it having been a success. Pardon me now, while I go to sleep for about a week. Thanks again, Brad

Then please let me offer my praise as well. The entire event was very well organized and ran quite smoothly. I enjoyed listening to the talks and meeting everyone, and look forward to a repeat next year. Sean

I pulled the ppt file out of the zip and have posted both of them on the conference website, so the traffic will go to amazon's s3 servers rather than your university account. Later, Brad

Thanks I don't think my web space would mind the traffic, but it's nice to know I won't have to worry. (any way I can get stats at some point?)

You're a much better photographer than I am! And yes, the space needle shot is pretty good.

Later has arrived. The first 4 videos (3 presentations) are up on the website: http://d.puremagic.com/conference2007/speakers.html Walter and Andrei's talk (86 + 112 minutes): http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=-6262259850172814399&hl=en http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=5552232015568336937&hl=en Don's talk (41 minutes): http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=1440222849043528221&hl=en Ben's talk (19 minutes): http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=-1048204291439246024&hl=en Why those? Somewhat random placement of the video's on the dvd's. The rest, with the exception of Cristian's) will come tomorrow. Christian's needs some editing before it can go public. Each of the talks has a description and a friendlier title already submitted, but after a few hours the updates haven't propagated out from the manager tool to the actual public website. Presumably that'll happen soonish. Later, Brad
