GSoC 2009 Chicago area meeting

Thanks to the effort of the tireless Borja Sotomayor for the local ACM chpater as well as the good folks at Google in Chicago, we had a local kickoff meeting for this year's Google Summer of Code at Google's Chicago office. A few accepted GSoC students, mentors, and a few Google engineers gave short presentations to a bunch of ACM-affiliated students from U of C, Northwestern, DePaul, IIT, UIC, ... I gave my first ever 'lightning talk' --- on R and the GSoC --- and after chatting a bit more rushed home to catch the end of the amazing triple-overtime win of the Bulls over the Celtics. Go Bulls for the improbable game seven in Boston!
