ITEM: RootsTech - Wrap up (Attendees)

Louis (GeneJ said…) – blog captures some of his energy and excitement
Louis said – Developers need to show things that work. RootsTech expressed a vision with lots of promise.
Tamura – has been following the blogs … looking for some vendor action on GEDCOMX
Roger – watched many of the live streaming; from a distance, seemed it went well
Andy – successful conference; FS working to become more open; seem sincere in desire for street cred
Geir – FHISO went from zero to 100 in a couple of days. Much new technology coming along that is going to be exciting. GEDCOMX (for later discussion). Good impression.
Robert – Enjoyed the presentations he was able to attend. Saw both of Ryan Heaton’s day one presentations. Excellent presentation. Josh’s presentation—Robert hopes Josh’s slides will be available. Myrt was particularly helpful in introductions. Meetings held with any number of constituents.
