Audience and Voter Comments

talents can be accquired through hardwork! Born talented people have worked their butts in a previous lifetime be it Jesus, Beethoven or anyone of DB2 participants. The point is , that DB2 is a wonderful stage where their talents can be put to use by serving the community as a whole Kudos to DB2!!!!

Awesome opportunity to recognize brilliant minds.

great idea!

I watched Kohli's presentation before he presented. :)

Interesting, but over my head as I am not an IS worker.

Really enjoy the presentations. Learn a lot from them!

What an interesting contest -

I did not know about it until alerted by my company. It is certainly something constructive and real world until the networks verison. Truely, all of this is outside my realm of knowledge, but it is exciting seeing the people who are changing our world in a real way being acknowledged for that contribution.

Great Job even if it was over my head.
