    this should just be about building links and supporting the NYC tech community. We have so much work to do in order to build the institutions and support structures that SV, Boston, Austin, etc. have. Although the presentation by Clay was amazing. As he was not pitching a specific company that was a great way to educate the community; loved that part.

    I was at the edge of my seat throughout yesterday's meetup. Not only was the topic - future of (self)organizing - particularly relevant, but the presenters also were top-notch. Stickk and The Point demonstrated very unique (and possibly world-changing) business models. As per usual, Clay Shirky's presentation was equal parts insightful and comedic. I'm looking forward to reading his book "Here Comes Everybody." Nice work Scott.

    will be interesting to see where these companies or ideas go in a year.
    i like the idea off a meet up tracker.

    Great lineup of people working on inspiring projects. A common theme uniting the presentation adds a nice coherence to the evening.

    I really liked this meeting versus February. I also liked the general communities theme for the meeting and hope to see that continue.

    Good presentation and it got my wheels spinning in a helpful way. I wish there was a longer Q&A period as I was interested in the types of questions other ppl were thinking.

    The last event was so great. After the NY - Tech Meet-up ended right outside IAC The cross town 14th street Bus became the After NY-Tech Mobile event as conversations continued till everyone got off the bus at each given destination. *Only in NY*
