  • Hi Jesse, would be great if you could add some annotations/comments to the slides (I mean more than those couple of words below). A lot of them aren't making any sense to somebody (which is probably the majority) who hasn't had a chance to see you present those slides. Thanks in advance and looking forward to it!
