  1. I could not attend the meeting tonight so I am grateful it was recored on UStream. My thanks for doing that.

    Though I could not hear most of the questions from attendees, the answers were darn good! Thanks to the speakers for their contributions.

    The stream recording did not show the audience. How many people attended?
