    This was my first DFWWP meetup so I wasn't sure what to expect. It was very informative and filled with friendly and knowledgeable people. The presentation was more technical than I was expecting but highly informative.

    It was good. I may have even thought of a way to use it.

    BuddyPress has come so far. I was pleased to hear about all the new developments it now offers and will be offering. I will be knee deep in a new installation on Monday. Thanks Mike! :-)

    Mike did a great job in opening my mind to a new way to use wordpress as an ultimate content mamgenet system, and how Buddy Press will be a big part of the process.
