Thanks Dougal and Tim, that was a good overview of how MongoDB works. Look fwd to some more in-depth stuff now ;)

It was a small meetup (possibly because of the terrible weather that we were having) Given the relatively small size meant we had quite an intimate meetup. (It felt more like a roundtable discussion)
About half of the attendees where using MongoDB in production, with the other half being curious about Mongo.
I talked through a simple ruby app that I wrote to demonstrate how MongoDB can simplify your codebase for achieving simple tasks such as implementing tagging and nested documents. (the code is available here http://github.com/dougalmacpher...)
Tim Bull stood up and was able to help me elaborate on some of tricks that MongoDB allows you to do with regards to querying/updating documents. Since we had our swag from 10gen - we were able to hand out books to those that were curious about Mongo and had the most questions. The more experienced mongo members where grateful to receive a mongodb t-shirt each on the condition that they give a talk at the next meetup
