    Apparently now withdrawn, but I'd still like to add my $.02. Unsubstantiated BS from a fake id about plagiarism is BS. Sad that Meetup even allows this. Matt Sabljak is real and original.

    So Phil, where can I find your products? I'd like to send customers your way.

    Normally would not get involved in this type of thing, as it is a complete waste of time. I was at the presentation and I learned a few good things. It bothers me a great deal that someone feels the need to attack someone else on a site like this. They pop up on my email, otherwise I'm too busy trying to get a start-up off the ground and on the store shelves. I guess others don't have enough things to do or want to promote some dumb ass agenda by searching the internet to be able to post like a middle school age kid ("yucky"...WTF?) and get people riled up. Also, I use my full name and don't hide in cyber space because I have the courage to call things as I see it. I am a firm believer in free speech and have no filter, so grow up and use this site to mutually help one another or learn something. I would rather talk about my great products being released soon, than this, but it just annoyed the shit out me seeing this.

    Totally different Matt here, but I would also like more info to substantiate the claim. Matt S is on my list of people to contact regarding some upcoming work. Where are the other presentations that may/may not resemble Matt's?

    @Alex - That's quite a claim. I'm not saying it isn't true, but can you point to some evidence? Also is it possible that the presentation it is similar to is one he created at a different company he worked for? That'd still be wrong, but a little less 'yucky'.

    I would like a copy of the slide show - a great outline. FYI those interested in getting some PR out...I ran into muckrack.com - I think you will find it interesting.

    Extremely informative with a unique presentation and delivery style, any way to get a copy of the slide show?

  • matt w.

    Put in words some of what I felt intuitively (so I'm not crazy) and brought up some great questions I should be asking myself. More time would be beneficial for Q&A.

  • Jim K.

    I agree Matt was great. I think that I might have picked on on this presentation as another demonstration of the branding concepts.

    Sounds like a great topic! Any chance this will be recorded and posted online if we are in Madison and can't make it?

    • Abby T.

      Hi Eric, unfortunately we won't be recording it. We hope you can make it!
