      Nice talk, good to see generic and specific background capabilities being added to the platform while still protecting the users experience. Good to see you landed another good detail session this year. Thanks again Peter!

      It's great to be able to watch the presentations and I do in fact have it downloading. But a transcript would be much faster. It would be handy for future reference. And it would allow me to examine the content of the session before committing to a gigabyte download. Also, text supports direct seek whereas video is clumsy for anything but serial access.

      OK now I feel stupid. Right under the picture is the like "Slides".
