February 2010 Meeting - Flash Talks

Our 2010 February Flash Talks were a fantastic success with 10 speakers in all. At the end of the day there was only one winner, Glen Smith with his GAE talk. Glen graciously gave up his first prize, an HP Mini Note because he'd just bought one and wanted the electronic bubble wrap, and handed it over to first time speaker and second place getter Paul Kilpatrick. Ross Rowe and Dean Macauly tied for third place and both got $100 JB HiFi gift vouchers. Everyone else got 8GB SanDisk USB drives for their effort (including Glen BTW).
