Round 13: Or maybe we should let superstition win?

Woah! We're back, and the fine folks at General Assembly (no, not the one at Zuccotti Park. Yup, that's the one), who graciously hosted us back in April, are hosting us again.

The format of course stays the same: 5 minutes to show off your hack, and 5 minutes for the audience to applaude, cry, laugh, inquiry, snore, chew, stand, sit, dance, grow, interact, etc. But, of course, we hope that the audience provides lots of great feedback and asks interesting questions (probably while sitting, though dancing audience members are certainly free to participate as well)!

Since we didn't know where we'd end up this month, we did a pre call for proposals, in order to ensure that we could RSVP the speakers before hand, but we still would like to hear your talk proposals, since plans change and we'll have another meetup in December.

So show us what you've got! But, remember, no startup pitches, no job related projects[1] and certainly no deckware!

See you at GA!

[1]: Let me clarify the "no job projects" rule. We want to promote the projects that people do in their spare time, for fun, or utility, and not the kinds of projects that are only applicable to people who work in your company, or your direct clients. On the other hand, there may be a project that you've built primarily at work, that solves a *general* problem that your company has allowed you to release with a libre license--this is usually fine.

    Hack and Tell is awesome! Lots of interesting, cool and just silly projects that show off the creativity of the NYC hacking community.

    It was excellent.

    I would have given it 5 stars, but I still take slight umbrage with the skew against designers. Granted, they do a lot less hacking than devs, but having a very mathy problem for the RSVP can be seen as a "Keep Out" sign to designers.

    Holy crap, the quality of the presentations just keeps going up. Great stuff, great people and environment too.

    I'm closing up RSVPs for tonight.

    We don't have beer for tonight, but General Assembly is perfectly fine with us *having* it. If you'd like to bring a six pack to share, I'd encourage you to do so! The more the merrier!

    If you're still on the waiting list, that means you either didn't answer the question with any sensible answer, or it's flat out wrong. :) If you'd still like to join us, fix your answer, or submit one.

    We've got a pizza sponsor (took less than 5 minutes). Thanks to everyone who offered to help out! There'll certainly be opportunities in the future :)

    Is anyone interested in sponsoring pizza for the night? In return, we can offer you 2 minutes to talk about why you/you're company is awesome and why hackers should work there. Ping me or James if you're interested!

    If you've gotten an update to your RSVP that says you're not waitlisted or "Not Going" this is a result of you not answering the required question, and/or it being completely wrong. If you'd like to contest this decision, contact me. Otherwise, you're welcome to jump back in line. Answer the question and you'll get to the front sooner. :)

    Many of you have RSVPed -- AWESOME. But, only some of you have actually answered the question that you should get when RSVPing. It's possible that you didn't get the RSVP question because of the way in which you RSVPed, but please go back and answer the question:

    What is the sum of the digits in the number 2^1043? Yes, that ^ is "exponentiation." Witty answers will be considered on a case by case basis. We will delete the RSVPs of those that RSVP without a valid answer.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
