    Scott was fantastic. "Critical Mass VS Credible Mass". very important concept for creative community.

      It is critical for any type of feedback loop and measurement system. I love the phrase.

    I recently started attending Meetup sessions and found this one to be the best I have attend thus far in the Tri-State region. It was well organization, executed with great timing and gave a great feel of community building. The content was very well done and I look forward to future participation and getting actively involved.

    Scott was terrific! A great example of a passionate entrepreneur with the stamina and leadership to gather a group of talented people and guide them to success! I hope he allows his slides to be posted.

    This was a great event! As a first timer, I appreciated the friendly, casual networking, the excellent presentations - from the 3 pitches to Scott Belsky, who was fantastic - and that everything ran on the time schedule promised.

    Last night's meetup was great! This was my first NJ Tech Meetup and it was an outstanding group of people. The meetup was well-managed from beginning to end and Scott Belsky was an excellent guest speaker.

  • Charlie F.

    Great venue and presentation. Scott's an original speaker and passionate to try to arrest the 'race to the bottom' regarding fees for creatives that crowd sourcing magnifies. Will the presentation be posted somewhere?

    I got an email that there's one spot available, but I don't see how to RSVP

    • Mark F.

      Yeah I got it heh :-)

  • Damian B.

    I got an e-mail saying that there is now a spot available. I would like to attend (+1 guest if possible). How do I RSVP? I am already on the waiting list.

    May 2, 2013

    • William S.

      I read in the help section here on meetup that - if you're on the guestlist w/ a +1 - then you will not be assigned an open spot unless two of them are free at the same time. Perhaps change your RSVP to just you so you can have that next open slot.

  • Michael B.

    Disappointed that I will be out of town this week, should be a good session!
