Hi, Ted,

Thanks very much.  Yeah- I really wasn't sure what this list was when i got the email telling
me to reach out regarding swag, I'm glad that I found it though.  seems like some good discussions
going on here.

As far as what we need/want, I'm really not sure,  Anything would be great to be honest, 
I've only done one talk personally at the Orange County Big Data Analytics Meetup; there were
about 60 people there.

It does seem like a great place to Advertise Apache and of course Mahout.  I've Also been
invited by the co-organizers of that meetup to do a talk at the Orange County Advanced Analytics
Meetup, which i Am looking for the time to do after this upcoming release.

So really anything would be great,  Thanks alot for the offer.  Its really been Trevor Grant
and Suneel Marthi that have been doing most of the talks. Recently Trevor did the DFW meetup
which is pretty large from what I understand.

So yeah I'm not sure what is available, but a little swag goes a long way.
