|Mass Inno at IBM Waltham|
The turnout was pretty good despite the rescheduling. The Experts Corner was packed and lively.

|Activity in the Experts Corner|
PointKnown -- Mapping buildings digitally for energy modeling, retrofits and reuse
ScreenRetriever -- Software for parents to see what their children are doing online
WaySavvy -- Simplified travel booking cuts through the screens and screens of data and gives you options for cheapest, biggest bang for the buck, and swankiest
Grembe Apps -- Apps to create pictures, flashcards, storyboards, routines, and visual schedules for kids with special needs
I made sure to check out each of those and as many others as I could in the demo areas. Besides the four presenters I managed to check out Memory on Hand, Job Tac Toe, bubulu labs, and say hi to LockerNotes (met him at the last MIN).

Job Tac Toe has a unique approach to job hunting, turning it into a game, giving the hunter status and support. Caroline gave an enthusiastic pitch and I enjoyed our conversation about the job hunting process and about status in hunter gatherer societies. Looks like a great way to fight the depression, boredom, and discouragement that can creep in to the job hunt.

WaySavvy cuts through the information overload involved in online travel booking. I love that it sorts the results into cheapest, best bang for the buck, and swankiest so I can just click on a tab for the type of trip I want and book it right away and all at once. And he was handing out cookies!

Kudos to Bobbie Carlton for another great event despite the weather-induced obstacles. Thanks to IBM Waltham for hosting.
