    Nice job Robert. As always, the bar of professionalism keeps rising.

    I felt the mentored presentations were well done. I recommend you have all the presenters do the same. That is a big audience and it will sell the program all the better with some polish. I found Mr. Felts comments interesting and a good perspective. The twitter was funny for a while but went south.

    I thought the forum of the companies demonstration and a subject matter expert speaking after was a great mix for the meeting- which was my first. I was very happy with the experience and will tell others about the Denver meeting.

    This was the first time I had attended this session and I really enjoyed it. There was so much energy in the room! I am amazed at all the creativity and intelligence that permeated the entire meeting. It was evident in both the presentation and the questions from the audience. I am looking forward to attending again in the near future.

    Robert is the best timekeeper ever. He keeps what could be a long, drawn-out meeting evenly paced and lively.

    The content, moderation and presentations were all GREAT! Time keeping was excellent and unobtrusive. I really appreciated the group/community announcements at the beginning of the Meetup and would encourage expansion, perhaps through more formal use of time before/after Meetup proper. I found the realtime Twitter to be distracting from presentations and annoying (electronic upmanship) since it did not usually contribute to topic at hand, more background chatter and some of it quite juvenile. The "mentoring" program is clearly working - succinct and interesting presentations.

    As a first-time attendee, I was blown away by the enthusiasm for this meet-up, as evidenced by the overflowing courtroom, the quality of the presentations and Q&A's, and the spirited Twittering on the side.

    Great meeting. Both the new technology presentations and the VC presentation were interesting, fun and entertaining.

    I really like the part where you meet the people next to you. I think that that could go on for 2-3 min and be evan more benificial.

    Fun atmosphere. The 10-minute format works very well - presentations are tight and not boring. Longer would not add any additional information.

    Too much drunk behaviour in the back - perhaps no beer?

    Twitter was fun in a way, but I think the anonymous comments can go bad too.

    All in all, I had a great time there.

    too crowded, but interesting presentations.

    My first. Excellent turn-out. Great venue. Would recommend NOTposting the live twitter feed. Distracting.

    Thank you for doing this, Robert! Kudos to you for organizing and pulling this together. Can't wait for next week's in DENVER, er, uh, that plac far, far away from Boulder - thank god!

    Standing room only is not what I expect when attendance is limited.

    I thought it was great last night I diffently learn on the new technology but it was a lidrawn at the end there but other then that it was great.

    Good group! Glad it's growing. Fun to see the competition between Boulder and Denver natives.

    The quality of the startup efforts just keeps getting better: mobile postcard transmission, surveys "now", innovative engineering design, professional coaching at low cost, new links between print and net. And of course, hearing from Brad Feld is always educational and inspirational. Entrepreneurs: Do it! And make it really good.

    Very fun environment to hear about new ideas and technology. Good, positive energy from all those attending. Great format - I'm glad you stuck to the time limits for each presentation.

    Was advised at 4:45 that a spot had opened up for a 6:30 meeting in Boulder,
    impossible to make from south Denver, thanks anways for the thought.

    February 4, 2009

  • Robert G.

    The only thing that was a detractor was the fact that I didn't have a seat.

    February 4, 2009

  • Robert R.

    I was intimated with the amount of people staring at me tonight, thank you for taking it easy on me.

    Although a fairly early RSVP, and arriving 15 minutes early (to the room after 15 minutes to find parking, so would have been 30 minutes early) still could not get a seat and left in frustration after several laps around the room. This after a 45 minute drive.

    So either the confirmation system is broken, seats were removed, or the room was occupied by many folks without rsvp. Won't be back.

    Robert does a great job of hosting this event and keep presenters to time. I like the punch nature of the presentations - short and sharp. The sense of comaraderie was great, I like the Twitter feed and found it entertaining but also distracting at times which could be disrespectful to presenters (how do they feel about it?). Are we contributing to even more A.D.D with all that information overload and scattered attentions??? Despite the laughs...

    Fantastic - I love the vibe, the humour, the intelligence, the technology, the presenters, the host (Robert) and most of all the sense of community and collaboration. One of the best groups I have joined - and I been a part of many!

    Brad Feld was a very good addition to the meeting.

    Another crowded, fun, inspiring, impressive, and somewhat rowdy meetup, plus some Brad Feld overtime.

    Robert,
    The talk by Brad Feld was the best part of the evening. It is VERY helpful to have time set aside for people like him to take questions. Other possible kinds of people to invite: CEOs for hire, Patent Attorneys, Financial wizards to speak about how much equity needs to be given up to angles, VC, etc.
    Thanks for organizing these meetings.

    First time attendee. It was interesting. I enjoyed the companies presenting - and the Twitter comments were hilarious.

    Great to get Brad's perspective and ideas. The room had a good 'community' feel. I esp. liked the Boulder vs. Denver diss'ing !

    February 3, 2009

  • Bob W.

    Very pithy presentations by Brad Feld before and after, and the company presentations were also above average for this meeting. We may need to meet in the stadium.

    February 3, 2009

  • Brett G.

    Awesome as always. Not sure if I like the Twitter feed up during presentations. At first it seemed to add to the community vibe, but then it seemed like a disrespectful distraction to the presenters. And some of the tweets were obnoxious creating a "look at the Twitter feed instead of the presenter because it's like a car crash you can't look away from" scenario.

    So I like the community aspect of it, but if I had worked hard on a presentation I wouldn't want to compete with a room full of tweeters trying to make the audience laugh during my presentation. It kind of feels like the audience being in an inside joke at times at the presenters expense. My two cents for what it's worth.

    I also can't figure out how people without laptops and a wifi code tweet in that room because my iPhone has never gotten service in that room.

    First time there. Same as every other Entrepreneurial venue I've been to. Companies were decent. Lame VC giving typical VC schpiel at the end. Wonder how many times hes had to answer those same questions. Might be better if there was a break with some networking time.

    way too many people! The room was rated for 255 or so and there were at least 350.

    February 3, 2009

  • Michael C.

    Everything was great. Met some wonderful connections and heard about interesting businesses... Just need a larger venue!

    February 3, 2009

  • Don P.

    Thanks for hosting another fun event. While banter and web 3.0 = bullshit is fun, the heckling twitters were childish. It is one thing to have a poor presentation, but laughing at people, literally, behind their backs brings the whole group's level down to the elementary school level.

    unfortunately I didn't stay for the meetup - i arrived right at 6:30 when it started, and the room was already overflowing. I decided to listen to introductions, then plan to come at least 30 minutes early for the next meetup.
