I'm John Uhri. I am an independent consultant and software developer who uses Ruby on Rails. I have a thousand ideas, many fewer active projects, and none that qualify as a startup - yet. I'm looking to learn and eventually get some feedback.
Startup Collaboratory is a great meetup run by Troy and Jerome. Troy does a great job of keeping the group on track and making sure everyone's questions get answered. The mix of technical and non-technical entrepreneurs makes for interesting conversations. While meeting new people happens at the meetup, the focus is not on networking or selling services, but on the goal of building startups and holding one another accountable. It's a refreshing change from many other business meetups.
