Additional Notes

I just wanted to add that this was my absolutely favorite Keynote presentation. Michael has a natural energy that is truly inspiring. I had to wait around and was able to speak with him for a few moments. He was as gracious, humorous and inspiring in a one on one meeting as he was on stage. He is the real deal.
