Wrap Up

Tumlinson thanking people who put the conference together, and expressing his honor at being part of a conference of "doers." Seeking feedback on future conferences. There is a dream in this room that we all hold--an incredible future for humanity, that we can all participate in, and paint that future in the stars.

In addition, it's quite churlish to jump on extemporaneous speeches. But then, one has to consider the source.
