    Good Media Week activity - ties DC Tech in with the program and the content was top drawer.

    Great selection of companies pitching, interview, logistics, venue, moderating...

    Well done. The speakers/products were interesting, and speeches were kept to a short enough period to ensure that it didn't drag on.

    Peter, this was an amazing MeetUp. The demos were great, and in my opinion, the most engaging we've had. Loved hearing about HungryAcademy, Spinnakr, and Sponto especially. And appreciated the engagement of Startup America and the Whitehouse guy, which helped hone in on what D.C. needs and needs to be able to do.

    Also, thought the Web, Inc. guy seemed really earnest. A great MeetUp.

    Personal preference is to avoid lawyer-shaming in the future.

    My first DC Tech Meetup was a good one, well worth front row seating. Every speaker provided something that was either useful or entertaining, and I even got a tee shirt and a nice fruit juice on the way out the door. So, information junkie that I need to be, it was well worth the bother of attending.

    I didn't know you had to be invited to the afterparty. Showing up and being shut out was a bit disappointing but the event was good.

    The meeting was exciting to have so many attendee's I liked the fast pace presentayion format. The sound system was uneven and I was not able to hear many of the presentors. What would be helpful is to have a post event post of the minutes of the meeting. That way I could search on the people and companies that were there. This just a suggestion.

    Big group of attendees. Impressed by presentations from Startup America, White House networking person @macon44, other companies. impressive number of persons interested in tech startups - an 'ecosystem' is developing in DC.

    Great night! Interesting concepts presented on schedule with a free happy hour. What else could you want in life?

  • Joan B

    Good presentations by some up and coming social media companies. Meeting was kept on schedule which is much appreciated!

  • Dick Davies

    The startups gave a hands-on insight to the the types of projects currently in demand. We got an extraordinary explanation of the social media scaling being created at the White House, and Haroon's explanation of what he learned during his successful exit of his startup was believable, valuable, and endearingly human. Awesome show!

    One of greatest experiences - thanks, guys!

  • John Casey

    I enjoyed seeing the product demos (two of which I had beta-tested) and thought the content, pace, organization of the event was just about perfect. Enjoyed the public service announcements at the end, although some folks abused the privilege by yammering on and on.

    Event was great!

    Always interesting and always fresh. I seem to find someone new to bring each time and they seem to be happy with the decision of joining me.

    This was my first meetup and, as such, didn't have many expectations. I was totally blown away by how well run it was.

    We don't use the wall comment feature at DC Tech Meetup as it spams every one's accounts and we can't turn it off. Please use the Discussion Forum. ANY POSTS AFTER MY COMMENT WILL BE DELETED - AND IF THIS IS ABUSED YOU'LL BE BANNED. Thanks :)
