Thanks Kirk. Means a lot. I believe the talk was received well. People
seemed to be listening rather than typing on their laptops or playing
with their mobiles.

I didn't ask how many speakup users were in the audience. In general I
should have made it more interactive. I think that was a mistake. This
talk was late on Friday afternoon - the last day of summit. Attendance
in all talks at that time was relatively low because people preferred
to take a look around the town before their journeys back later in the

In general I hope we can share this talk with anyone interested in
contributing to speakup. It can help them in ramp up.

Greg N, as Samuel said, time had run out so there wasn't much time for
more questions. There was a technical glitch with presentation
equipment which took a few minutes. Also, I could have managed time
better :)
