    Strauss Zelnick was a tremendous speaker. If the quality of the speakers remains this high, the +30 meetup will definitely qualify as 'not to be missed'.

    All signs point to Strauss being spot on. I think because of the abundance of media (already consuming 10 hours/day per person on average) there will be a backlash against it. Anti-media groups, and privacy groups will be leading the charge to protect our "humanness"

    Absolutely fantastic gathering. Thought provoking, and well worth the trek out to dark depths of Brooklyn.

    Strauss Zelnick's presentation was excellent - insightful, thought provoking and very entertaining.
    Q&A was energetic and smart.
    Sam Lessin's team were great hosts and infused the Meetup with their own value-add technology demonstration that was icing on the cake.
    Thanks for time well spent.

    This was my first BK Future Meetup event and I thought Strauss Zelnick gave an excellent presentation. He was entertaining, gave us his predictions and a lot of food for thought. Good job by the organizers as well, I look forward to seeing what comes up next.

    An incredible, inspiring talk that was pretty spot on. Networking afterwords was awesome.

    Thanks for setting up the event Sam.

    I liked how Strauss really laid out some strong, controversial positions that were good food for debate. It might've been nice to have less of an overview and more of an in depth discussion on fewer positions.
