    Thanks to the folks at Cisco, Patrick, Amir, Ray, David, and the rest of the presenters tonight and Shervin and Melinda for organizing. Best meetup yet.
    A few people saw the Realtime Google Analytics launch today that John, John, and myself were involved in. If you were interested in early access, you can send me (benmccann.com/contact) the email address you use to login and we'll hook you up as our way of giving back to the community.
    Thanks for coming out and keeping the group growing.

    Re: Dress Code: Other than beach-wear (flip flops are cool), I think you will be okay. Whatever you happen to be wearing today.

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.
