I may depart a little bit fron the previous agenda by the other speakers in that I'll share with you a perspective in terms of the U.S. market of trying to quantify it for you and give you a feel for the trends, but I would also like to give you a feel for some statistics about how the technology and where the technology is being used in U.S. metal working plants in comparison to other manufacturing processes. And then I'd like to kind of open up the discussion to the group, particularly the laser suppliers and laser systems suppliers who are in attendance to explore ways that we can help to expand the available market for the technology in the U.S. Dave Belforte has intimated that the U.S. is falling behind in the adoption of this technology and I think we need to turn our sights here in the U.S. on how we help expand that market at a much more rapid rate.
