It's been too long since our last meetup and we're excited to kick it off again with our friends at Ridejoy (http://www.ridejoy.com). Come join us on Tuesday, May 15 at CrowdFlower (http://www.crowdflower.com)'s offices to hear from a host of awesome speakers who will talk about the future of work and the cool stuff they are doing to impact crowdsourcing. We will provide food and drinks and you should bring questions and conversation for our speakers and other Meetup guests.
Here is the lineup for May's meetup:
