    Sounds like a great beginning. I remember a Jeffrey Moore prsentation at an ITAC conference on Crossing the Chasm. He is really good. Lots of nice mental models.
    I did listen to the 41 minutes.
    I am excited to hear about the SAS partnership. They sure know analytics so should be some neat stuff out of that.
