For such an audience, the bottom-up approach strikes me as exactly
right.   When sitting in such an audience, my hope is to come away
with enough intuition about the system being discussed that, if
stranded on a desert island, i'd be able to reinvent it from the hints
provided.  That level of understanding of "what the thing does" makes
me much more comfortable evaluating it.

You hit "key ideas" very well.

You would appear to be a very skilled speaker.   

These slides are _fantastic_.

BTW, you mentioned that your presentation of this was thwarted because
of some BK licensing issue.   Are we to infer from this that BK is
used internally at RH?
