    Hey everyone. First off, the teams did an awesome job presenting last night! I created a book about this event using my startup's web site, travelstrings.com (link at the bottom). We're a new platform that turns your photo albums and memories into digital storybooks. We'd love if you could check it out and offer any feedback you have. See you next month! http://travelstrings.com/livebook/216

    Thanks to Marina for the opportunity for Fan Appz to present last night! I understand Matt did a great job in my place (a family issue popped up), and thanks for the supportive tweets! I look forward to meeting everyone in person @ the Feb. event.

    Much appreciation to the Cross Campus folks and Marina for putting on a solid event at a lovely and intimate venue! I'm sure others will echo my sentiment for the cool open mic segment at the end -- that really helps companies or folks to get some public announcements out to a highly directed audience. More kudos.

    LA Tech scene has definitely grown up, and I'm glad to be back from Vietnam to be part of its growth trajectory.

    Don't forget to take a look at https://getconfido.com and give it a test drive for your next Craigslist transaction. BTW, the $10 posting incentive can pay that gym membership to honor your New Year's resolution ;-)

    After seeing the other posts I thought I would add one more, given that with so many people I may only have a chance to meet a few. As ridiculous as it might sound, my start-up will be addressing a root cause of the inability of society to reach rational consensus in a timely manner on great controversies such as the so-called war on drugs, immigration policy, and global warming. Traditional ways to debate such issues are fundamentally superficial. That is one reason why demagogues can still fool most of the people most of the time. Polls should that people are woefully ignorant of basic science, history, politics, etc. That is a recipe for disaster. The broadband interactive web has made possible a type of re-imagined debate which will for the first time in history enable leading authorities to make their main points and effectively challenge each other. I am looking for team members who want to really make a difference for a more peaceful, rational, and just world.

    A bit weary of doing it all? My skillset complements an engineering-minded entrepreneur: product testing, tech writing, marketing strategy and writing, creating presentations, presentation coaching, and promo video development. Don't hesitate.
