      Hi Kirill,

      Is there another way to access the video? I can't follow the meetups location as I am no longer in the SF area.

      Hi Michael, thanks for giving Place a shot! I just shared them on me Facebook page, this way they will be accessible in the browser. But generally, the way to see what's placed if you're not nearby is to follow the place and see it in the cute dashboard.
      I'd appreciate you dropping me a few lines about your experience at [masked]

    Do they allow bicycles inside the building? Market and 10th doesn't seem the safest place for a bike...

      It probably won't be live but we will definitely video record the panel and post them on youtube as we have done in the past. Here's the link to the past panels and where we will post the future one: http://www.youtube.co...­
