    I was RSVPd, and when I arrived I was turned away at the door. This is about as bad of a meetup experience as one can have.

If you ware me would you feel good about Google, ... According the front guy just wants me to go out and he told me it is nothing to do with Google, all is from you, even he know you are working for google,...Is this the public profile for google?

    What would be really cool is to have (for any DB - ER, Graph, OO) - an ability to easily produce a diff between two timestamped snapshots of the data. Histories of objects, not the DB. Then you can notice a trend, saddle it and ride all the way..

    2. console.neo4j.org in Crome - Tried to change the Matrix script (added and connected one entry). Clicking "Click to generate" btn produced no action, the overlay did not go away, not sure if it's clickable. Did it work for you guys?
    3. console.neo4j.org - in IE 8 does not even load, David said they don't support it. What are you experiences?

    1. Tried to download and unzip on Windows 7 WITH JAVA INSTALLED (Scala and other stuff works). Neo4j.bat give this error "Unable to locate jvm. Could not find HKLM\SOFTWARE\JavaSoft\Java Runtime Environment/CurrentVersion entry in windows registry." Did it work for anybody on Win 7?

    I'll take the hit for this one. Security asked me how long they needed to staff the lobby to let people up. They wanted to re-allocate our lobby security elsewhere on campus. I figured that 7:15 was enough of a buffer for anyone showing up late. I was wrong to do that without calling that out in the meeting announcement in advance. From now on, I will do that. Sorry Y.H Chang for the problems tonight.

    Sorry. We didn't get a volunteer to live stream or even record for later tonight. Would love a volunteer for this group that could do this. Any takers?

  • John W.

    anyone streaming this talk online by chance?

    May 16, 2012

  • John W.

    Darn it! Was in a meeting until too late now. Will never make it down there in time. At least the meeting resulted in another company deciding to go with neo4j. :)

    Can we attend this session online??
    If it is arranged then it will be great favor for people who want to attend from outside USA.

    May 16, 2012

  • Ashish K.

    Is it going to stream online?

    May 16, 2012

  • Van R.

    They should register separately. Adding a comment that says +1 guest does not count. Having said that, we are not planning to check tonight because the event tonight did not produce a waiting list. If it had, then we would have been checking and unregistered guests would not have been let in.
