    Apologies to those of you who wanted to see the Trikke today. I awoke with the beginnings of a flu my wife has had for four days and I felt it better to not share. Join me please to see the Trikke ultralight personal transporter at the DC Tech Breakfast on May 21

    Here's wishing you a prosperous (and healthy) rest of your week. Adam

    Very intrigued by FiscalNote service - very robust Analytics for tracking legislative data, trends, probabilities. Is there an affordable price point for nonprofits ? Could be a great way to get a lot of users and visibility.

    Really impressed with the redesign of the Whyttle website - clean, fresh and appealing. Now, go get those 1M users! How can Techbreakfast community help?

    Loved the MakeMe video and the concept of personal achievement as a multi-player game - great demo!!

    Crisp, clear and cool morning for the trip to Columbia from old town...but I was hoping for less traffic due to Spring break. I'll be there - a little late, can't wait!

    I'd love to be there, but I am running a Credo Council at the same time. Can't be in two places at one time and am glad for that!
