Feedback from similar sessions in 2009:

"Professor Sree gave an excellent presentation and that my learning experience of the Internet is 150% better than before his presentation."
- Janet Murphy

“Professor Sree’s presentation at the Columbia Club luncheon in Naples was riveting, fast-paced and packed with information. He presented his material clearly, accessing the internet in real-time to introduce his audience to new and useful websites. Sree was friendly and open to questions at all times, and his style and sense of humor contributed to what was a fun learning experience.”
- Michael Hanson
