    This week, we launched the crowdfunding mechanism I talked about at Nov. NJ Tech Meetup. Our first book is a collection of sci-fi stories from Nigerian authors imagining Lagos in 2060. Thanks for all the great feedback, everyone!

    I've heard so many express similar high-praise; truly regret not having been able to attend this one!! Kudos to Jeff P. for inspiring everyone and to Aaron for getting him into the room.

    Jeff Pulver was probably the best NJ Tech Meetup speaker in the last 12-18 months.

    Jeff was awesome - honest, inspiring, and educational. "If you dont know what youre doing, you can do anything"

    Fabulous event. One of the better meetup groups out there. Absolutely worth the trek over the river.

    Thanks for a fantastic meetup! Jeff was a great speaker - honest, funny & inspiring. I so appreciate hearing these personal stories of the people behind the companies we all know.

    Interesting stories and valuable life/career lessons from Jeff. The voting process at the end was pretty cool.

    I could not find parking last night. Drove around forever. Anyone know where we can park other than river st?

    November 20, 2013

    • eric h.

      It was my first time- I was also puzzled by parking. In talking to people afterwards, I was told that it's ok to park on Sinatra Dr below the campus for up to 4 hours. But next time I'll probably take the train and PATH if at all possible. This should be in a FAQ.

    Jeff's presentation was incredibly inspiring, his courage in the face of uncertainty and his willingness to share his authentic self with the group made this time well spent in my day.

    Folks, the unforeseen has happened here in PA... and I'm headed to help a friend go to the hospital. I see other people are interested in attending and sincerely hope it's not a problem. Nobody wants to be on the wall of shame! Will greatly miss Jeff's presentation: his fitness story in and of itself is really inspiring!
