Likewise I was aware your involvement with Peter Diamandis (whom I know via Jay Coleman.. as I was also trying to get them to sponsor a genomics prize), but I thought your involvement with x prize was limited to space flights and the flight school. Looking forward to seeing you soon! With best, Jon
Hello Esther, and thank you for your note. Yes - looking forward to comparing notes re genomics and bio-informatics space. I am aware re 23 and me and your involvement, and we've actually met a few times; last being when you spoke at The University Club (you brought your father) - and this was at the suggestion of Mort Hamburg and his daughter (they'd written a book for which they'd interviewed you). My father (Larry) introduced you for the talk.
Hi Esther, as a member of Meetup's board of directors I thought you should know that Meetup HQ has removed all but the past 2 years of emails from all mailing list archives of all Meetup groups, without giving any notice to anyone. (For instance, 2.5 years of Bay Area Quantified Self email archives are gone.) This is simply not the way any responsible company behaves if it expects its customers to trust it with their data. Please get some sense in Meetup's management to apologize and restore.
Hi Esther, I'm an organizer too, and Scott hasn't contacted me. It's been 3 weeks and this experiment has gone on way too long. Read the Meetup Organizers Forum to see how New Meetup has made organizers' lives more difficult and made us feel betrayed. We provide 85% of Meetup's revenue, and we did NOT ask for these drastic changes & removals of useful features (Ideas, event photos, Maybe RSVP, ...). Reverting to the (non-buggy) pre-Jan. 27 version would benefit Meetup Inc. and organizers alike.
Hello Esther. I'm a Medical Device Engineer, very interested in Quantified Self technology. I'm also the organizer of several meetup groups, including one taking advantage of the newmeetup platform to help connect the 2% of highly successful organizers within the meetup organizer ranks.
Hi, I see you are on the Meetup Board of Directors. Over the past 3 days, lots of loyal organizers have tried to reach Meetup management without success. (Organizers' fees constitute 85% of the company's revenues.) The Meetup Organizers' Forum has been deluged with furious posts. Here is a sample thread: http://www.meetup.com/boards/thread/1... Scott Heiferman has gone AWOL at a crucial time and needs to communicate with his customers and, I hope, undo this massively unpopular change.
