The Summit featured a panel discussion with guest speakers: Alberto Cairo, Professor/Author; Kennedy Elliott, Web Developer, Washington Post; Scott Murray, Author/Coder; and Sarah Slobin, Visual Journalist, Wall Street Journal. Although this was a pretty wide-ranging discussion, they all had in common one thing: a high comfort level with uncertainty (not in the strictly statistical sense, however). That was the most inspiring and comforting thing of all.
