Really cool to see all the different research projects. Was super hot and stuffy and hard to walk around--perhaps spreading the project displays out more would be better?

Loved the documentary. Seeing it on a big screen surrounded by a bunch of my friends was a great experience.
One complaint/suggestion is that the lights from the sound/control screens was kind of distracting when sitting in the upper half of the theater. Perhaps there is a better way to minimize or better cover up the screen from those screens?

Ilyasah was a good speaker. I would have loved to hear more about her father as she said a lot of what is said and told about him is untrue. I would love to have heard about her mother and the influence she had on Ilyasah's life.

I was so amped when I saw these folks were coming to the Rozsa. The band is so wonderfully quirky and pleasant. Their music style is unique and super pleasing to the ears. Who knew you could do ACDC in a blues grass style!? A Finish rock blues grass band definitely worth seeing.
