    very informative, especially the one-on-one interview and answers about decision-making guidelines of angels and vcs. That's info everyone can use. event was on schedule and never got boring. MC did a great job. Only gave 4 stars because everyone can improve ;)

    It was my first DC Tech Meetup, so I was not sure what to expect. It was really interesting and I was able to hear about a lot of cool things that would have been difficult without this forum. It was also great just to connect with people who are passionate about the same environment.

    Great meetup! The demos and presenters were rock solid and showed some really great stuff. The interview was entertaining, down to earth, and very informative. And of course the bar afterwards was packed with fantastic DC Tech folks and tons of fun!

    Fantastic! Peter was showing new paradigms for both startups and funding, while providing a wealth of information about new tools. Fast moving, great presenters, excellent stage direction.

    Talk was good, demo's seemed a little weak.

    Another great turnout, kudos to Peter and iStrategyLabs on keeping this going all year!

    My first DC Tech Meetup. I've started, funded, sold etc., but yet I found this inspirational. The 500 Startups interview, the open discussion by Living Social about its new service, the enthusiasm of the various startups, the stream of announcements at the start and the end... And Peter Corbett's smart emceeing....it all worked for me.

    Striking lack of mobile in the line-up but I'll let it slide.

    Idea for future speaker: "How do you know if quitting your job to launch a startup is a good idea." Several times tonight, people were basically egged on -- with suggestions and applause -- to go ahead and quit their jobs. This is a big decision that people really should consider carefully.

    large! A lot of people, good setup, the meet-n-greet at the Rocket afterwards was ok.

    Excellent. The presentations were varied and inspiring. The interview with Paul Singh in particular was so informative.
