Subject Re: [DISCUSS] We have a videographer. What videos do we want to make?
Date Tue, 11 Jun 2013 05:32:06 GMT

It looks like the presentation I did in San Francisco last month is not yet
available on Build a Cloud.

I would expect it to be up soon.

Just let me know if you'd like me to do something here.

Thanks!
