  1. Alex: were you at the event? I always enjoy your posts, and would have enjoyed meeting you in person. It may be worthwhile for organizers of future data camps to invite all participants to briefly introduce themselves during the opening session (I know there were 50 people, but given that more than 10 were more formally introduced, a quick go ’round would have been doable).

    Three quick notes:

    Amber Case has posted a great set of photos from the HearNear design & development process on Flickr.

    Jenny’s last name is Frankl.

    I’ve also posted some notes from Data Camp Seattle.
