Here's a note and some information from September's guest speaker Graham Sorenson:
"Thanks again for a great evening yesterday ... it was a great crowd to present to. I really enjoyed getting so many interested questions. I wanted to send along some links to different information that I mentioned during the talk in case anyone wanted to know more.
