Thank You Jarrett Walker!

Our first PAYT Pop-Up Event was a smashing success. We had over 80 people in attendance, some of which came from out of state.

Big thanks to Jarrett Walker for delivering an amazing talk at the Baltimore Metropolitan Council, and a big thanks to Michael Walk for helping coordinate such a fantastic speaker!

Jarrett made some thought provoking points in his presentation. A thread on our forums has been set-up to continue this dialogue: Jarrett Walker Wrap-Up Thread
