  1. Great discussion, Jonathan. This is really exciting stuff. All the participants are incredibly talented. I am curious as to how the gathered data is going to be shared among the industry producers since I am sure that some of their data is proprietary. I see this data really valuable to the smaller companies that don’t have the resources to gather this information. I can also see this valuable for all the members of this industry as an information hub since I have seen other companies work with local universities as an R&D source. I can’t wait to see where this goes as the wheels of technology start rolling ahead. This has some serious value for the future of our industry technology. Thanks.
