    I provide communication skills training for high-tech professionals. I made a presentation about this at the Hacker Lab anniversary event under the working title of GEEKommunication.

    It's not enough to have a great idea, product or service. It is also necessary to be able to communicate it clearly and persuasively to others.

    I would like to talk with people in Hacker Lab about how to make this training available to members and others in the high-tech community in Sacramento.

      We are a brand new meetup group. We haven't had our first meeting yet! But come on over and join and I will figure out when I can schedule you after I find out more about what you can talk about. ;-)

    I really enjoyed the Anniversary Party. I'm an independent contractor doing web development, UI, video production and post-production. I specialize in CSS, HTML, PHP, WordPress, Drupal & Joomla in the LAMP stack. Google me to see a little of my work.

    Owner designer of NexusMagicStore.com and several other small supporting sites. Also, marketing, and SEO consultant for house of sass launching in two weeks. Looking to meet and develop others for future start-ups. One directly in mind requiring the programming of a site that can track, and change the content of posted widgets. It all starts with a dream, and a purpose. Both are in place, now it just takes the tools, and the talent. This project is powerful and viral. The potential to build a large business and all be successful is all there. I have built a successful ecommerce business already but this project is out of the scope of my ability alone, but quite possible with the right partners.

    Genisi5 - 3D printer startup. I pitched my company last night, but I am sure that few heard me, lol.
    It's a billion dollar market, just getting started. We have a prototype and need some funding to reach the next level. Or not. We can get there, but money would make it faster, and faster is better when you're surfing the hype-curve.
    If you don't have money, maybe you have time and talent and can help us in some way? Come on down, I'm usually in the electronics shop at Hacker Lab.

    Hey all: I'm from CoNarrative in Granite Bay. We're a seed-funded software startup. We have customers lined up and we're now hiring coders to help finish and launch the product into their hands. Our app is game-changing and pushes the envelope of HTML5 (hint: it's not what's on our website). We want to grow development out locally and be part of the Sacramento tech surge so help us out :-) This is deep, cutting-edge JavaScript: NodeJS, Backbone.js, SVG, real-time collaboration, etc. -- so message me if you're comfortable stepping up to the challenge or know someone who is. What a great event last night and thanks!

    It was a bit crowded during the party's announcement/demo time. Hard to hear in the back, and hard to see what was happening up front. However, the biggest aspect was actually networking with others.
