2009 Eureka! Anniversary

The 2009 Eureka Anniversary took place on Oct 5 - Oct 6, 2010 at the Dolce Hayes Mansion in San Jose. Becky Schreiber and John Shannon returned to facilitate the event.

Each fellow had 5 minutes to "sell" their project. PowerPoint presentations should have no more than 20 slides, a la the Pecha Kucha model.
