    Hi Benjamin

    This is a great presentation. Wish I could see it live. Perhaps we will have to arrange a session at XTC with an overhead projector.

    As the person who stated that the InfoQ piece was a "Hatchet Job" I would like to check whether you climbed the ladder of influence on my intent. You assume in a very data based approach that I wanted to use the official definition of hatchet job. I did not. I used "Hatchet Job" in its colloquiall meaning a bad job.

    If someone had checked if my definition of "Hatchet Job" was the official definition as you describe, I would have backed away from the term.

    It just goes to show how hard it is to do this stuff. Its good stuff so keep it up.

    Being very conscious of language. I inferred from the presentation that I may have meant to use the official definition of "Hatchet Job".

    How does the model deal with Hyperbole? This definition -> ;-) en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hyperbole
