Nips just took place near Lake Tahoe. Many people have written how things are changing in machine learning. There also were many interesting papers and invited talks. Thanks to the program chairs Max and Zoubin for producing this exciting conference program. Thanks to the workshop chairs Rich Caruana and Gunnar Rätsch for the stimulating workshops. Thanks to Terry Sejnowsky for creating NIPS, and special thanks to Mary-Ellen Perry without whom nothing would happen.
