And the app I presented about is here: http://haveyouseen.tv (kick back and watch videos on any device)
This was my first MeetUp....The talks for the most part interesting.
Great group of presenters on a variety of topics.
Would love to see more technical lightning talks!

I've got a quick code demo too, if there's extra time.
If there's time I'll chat about Heroqueue which is a simple memcache based async job queue inspired by Heroku's less flexible bamboo stack.
ok- Ima rep-present something quick tonight.
@Slipp Douglas. I stand corrected ... and slightly amused. LOL.

@Kedar: I hope not. I'd rather be enlightened than struck.

Nice idea. Was the intention to call this "lightning" talks?
Help support your Meetup
Founded in 2004, NYC.rb is the place for experienced Ruby and Rails programmers in New York City.
We meet on the second and fourth Tuesdays of the month. Second Tuesdays are for one or more talks, and fourth Tuesdays are just hackfests, where people bring their laptops and hang out.
Job postings are allowed on the mailing list if they meet the following requirements:
* You must identify the company by name. * You must put [JOB] in the subject to help others filter out these messages. * The job must be Ruby-related, and in the NYC metro area.
You cannot directly contact other list members about jobs unless they've contacted you first--violators of this rule may be banned and/or publicly shamed.
If you have any questions or concerns about these rules, please feel free to contact the Meetup organizers.
Chat with us at nyc.rb on irc.freenode.net.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
