    A great informal gathering of lots of smart people and ME! Topic was very interesting and educational (no pun intended.)

    Constructive Thoughts:

    This was a good initiative but quite generic in terms of content. This was the first meetup I attended, and I felt there was no informative introduction as to what "it" aims to accomplish...unless it's generic brainstorming that gets picked up by whomever it may concern?

    The "education" panelists seemed to be rambling with no defined results/outcomes. Ironically there were only 5 people in the room who were related to the "education industry".

    One panelist stated: " is not about providing answers...but rather asking smart questions" - I could not disagree more. That's such a backward mentality that freezes the school system in a theoretical cocoon, rather then provide a practical experience that is valuable in the real world. I appreciated the enthusiasm of the Rudger's Univ. panelist.

    It felt....elementary. It seemed like we were there to educate the panel. Unfortunately I didn't see that the spotlight was on education when I signed up, I was hoping for the regular meetup.
    Keep the good ones coming Jeff!

    An interesting discussion with input from people I had not heard from before. Great to hear shared experiences, relevant to the times and the content.

    Yes, a seat opened up! Thanks guys! Looking forward to seeing how education intermingles with social media as a social learning startup founder.

    Jeff, I will see you tonight. This is the organizer (@WebStudio13) of NY Entrepreneurs Business Network. I'd love to come and pay at the door. It doesn't seem that PayPal lets me do it now. Glad to meet other tweeples as well at tonight's meeting!
