Congrats guys, awesome work. I didn't get a chance to see you guys after the CN Tower but feel free to contact me with feedback/details/suggestions for the future. Or post them here if you want to have a public dialogue about any of it. (I'm tired of having conversations with competitors about "how predictable a random walk is"....)
