Thanks to everyone that came.
Its always good to see the different approaches people take on different 
software.
Thanks especially to Justin and Kresten.
Justin; your enthusiasm is contagious. A lot of the attendees 
(especially the ones that arent actively using Erlang) mentioned how 
impressed they were.
Who knows... maybe soon we will see a bunch of startups springing up 
following the basho model.

ha @ david's comment. Im afraid I cannot sing though.
Anytime I try to imagine what a stereotypical hacker for a certain 
language looks like I meet someone that blows my idea out of the water.

Edmond, we will definitely need to do that. Ill send you an email off 
list later about it.

Cheers
Nikolas Bowe
