    There were a ton of talented people here, great to meet some cutting-edge developers. The space is definitely an issue - I'd suggest finding a new space or limiting the RSVP list. My back was killing me afterwards from sitting on the floor for two hours.

    Zohar, thank you setting up last night's event. Thank you Kaltura for providing food and beverages and opening their office. I couldn't help but notice that last night was little tight and short of seats. I would like to offer hosting the next event at the AppNexus office. We have alot of space and host tech events a few times a week.

    This meetup is seriously going downhill. It would be better to do once / 2 months but have better content.
    And as for the food : this is a meetup that used to sponsor really good pizza and now we're down to popcorn & chips.

    Vibrant, Packed and Full of talent - great party :)
    Terry Ryan did a surprise CSS talk! Was amazing to see where Adobe is taking CSS through their vast experience with Flash and Print.
    We had 5 lightning talks from Node.js and CouchDB to New web frameworks and Collaborative Canvas drawing pads.
    Thanks to everyone who attended and made it great fun!

    Looking forward to the event. I can do a lightning talk about automatic JSON API to databases if I can have a forum.

    You don't *need* to, but if you have a project or any item you want to work on together with others during the Hackfest, it might be a good idea.

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.
