    What a night ! To have stories from game creation masters like "Dame" Brenda Brathwaite of Loot Drop & Annie Chang of Lolapps (w/ 1 million daily players on just one of their games) was tremendous. Payvment 's Christian Taylor provided great insights on how he got to his shopping mall of 50,000 shops on FB. Veteran Waleed Abdulla of Ninua, now part of 500 Startups Incubator, gave a big picture of his initial roadmap, how it changed - was quoting Paul Graham on how ideas morph. Viroxoty's Joel Goodrich described how his original idea of a TV show morphed into their FB app FashionistaFaceOff, which may soon just have a TV show ! And to round out the evening moderating was Dhana Pawar who delved into the depths of the panelists DNA & elicited so much of their struggles & successes.

    This was one of the best meetups due to the fresh format of 5 companies in a panel discusion as opposed to the usual several company presentations. Very good.

    If we're still looking for a location, have you guys asked the Computer History Museum if they have a room at an affordable rate?
