  1. Last night’s meeting was great. Lots of info leading to lots more questions.

    I found a great primer for those who want more info about the technology we saw last night.

    This is a nice 16 page PDF that I found very useful. I don’t know who does the club’s emails, but if you could forward this to them, it might make a nice story, or even a page for the website.
