I already can't wait till next year.
Dan Geer - (I need to watch it again). Correct me if i am wrong..but
the whole premise of his talk was
"Don't re-invent the wheel, Steal from other places..use
them to your advantage"
hence all the parallels to banks and insurance companies
in regards to analyzing risk.
He also praised Edward Tufte and his book "The Visual
Display of Quantitative Information". Real good stuff.
The whole conference as a whole was an inspiring experience.
It got my brain churning all sorts of ideas. Well worth the $$$,
time, and brain cells that were lost at the bar.
