    The guy from the Times was worth waiting for. Other speakers varied in quality. It would have appreciated more of the 'how.'

    Great presentations as per usual, @kevinQ has a career in stand up comedy if this graphics editor @NYTimes ever becomes a bore...huge thank you to Chris and everyone that makes these excellent events possible.

    Come by 6:15 if you want a rapid fire tour of Meetup HQ before things get started! If interested, just arrive early and look for me--redhead with beer in hand.

    Do we meet at the Crosby Street address?

    I'm trying to attend but can't seen to get off the waiting list even though one slot is open.

      On the Papal landing page, the left-hand side has text fields with a "continue" button at the bottom. Fill that side out and you'll be able to pay by credit card without creating a Paypal account.

  • Yang S.

    Is it possible to provide an alternative payment method? Eventbrite worked fine but PayPal is really frustrating.

    • Chrys W.

      Hacks/Hackers NYC can only accept payment by Paypal. Look for an email.
