    Re: BEEKn and Beacons, very interesting. A (hopefully humorous) thought on the bacon-beacon: As with many things tech: just because one can do does not necessarily mean one should do. ;-)

      I will never look at bacon the same way.

    Thanks Ian for bringing this group together. It was helpful, informative & interesting. It's always helpful & inspiring to meet others who are trying to change the world. If anyone is looking to 1) market a digital health technology or 2) has an interest in helping a fintech get to market I would love to connect. Look forward to the next Meetup

    April 10, 2014

    • Alex

      Do tell more about fintech. Msg me and we'll take it from there.

  • Frank P

    Awesome Meetup! The venue was perfect for the intimate discussion of IOT, as a beginner interested in the space I was thoroughly impressed. Great to meet you all!

    Great presentations. Loved the talk on beacons.

  • Alex

    You learn something new everyday. Great pitch for a solution to a rather annoying problem and quite the educational presentation on the beacon technologies. Good to meet those whom I have met, everybody had really interesting inputs. Great kick off, hoping to see a lot more of these kind of events.

    Ian (et al.) If there are no objections, Chris Laurin can come as my guest. I tried doing a +1 on my RSVP but could not do so. Tx: JohnJ

  • Jon E.

    Wish I could make it, but in the interest of not getting you all sick, i'm going to have to skip this one.

    April 9, 2014

  • Hadi M.

    Due to several things I can't attend the session. Sorry for my late notice..

    April 9, 2014

  • chris david l.

    Hi Ian, I just joined the waiting list but intend to show up anyway in case there is space

    April 9, 2014

  • Fred W.

    Is there parking on-site? If not, is there free parking nearby?

    April 9, 2014

    • Ian P.

      Hi Fred, there is free parking on king but that's not a sure bet, there is paid parking behind the REN but not sure of the rate, that's where I'm paying to park tonight,

    I gotta bail... husband/kid scheduling mixup. Opening up a wait list spot tho!

    April 9, 2014

    • Ian P.

      Thanks Tricia....

    Looking forward to it. Any specific theme of the night?

    April 8, 2014

    • Ian P.

      Hi Cecillie, the theme was supposed to be a mix between wareables and beacons but now it's kind of a go with the flow because Karl of bionym had to be in California.

    coulda swore I signed up for this.. D'oh

    April 8, 2014

  • Alex

    Sadly, I have to go to YYZ for a pickup at 7pm. I did change my RSVP to no. Someone gets to move from the wait list now, which is automatic first in first out

    April 8, 2014

  • Leon

    shoot, for some reason I thought I RSVP'd long time ago ...but actually I am not even on waitinglist ....

    April 7, 2014

  • Alexandru M.

    Are you allowed to bring +1.

    April 1, 2014

    • Alex

      I think plus one should reflect on the actual attending 80 in that space may actually get near to fire code and everyone brings 80 + 1 thats 160 :)

      April 6, 2014

    • Ian P.

      You have a good point Alex but not everyone will be bringing a guest and not everyone that says they are going actually show up. Guests should technically sign up but for your request I said that shouldn't be a problem. I appreciate your comments but I can assure you that we are currently sitting at a good number, The REN@41 has lots of space.

      April 6, 2014

  • Ian P.

    Nymi can't make it now, Karl told me last minute so
    I'm working on filling his spot.

    April 1, 2014

  • Ian P.

    @alex you're welcome, glad you joined us.
    See you soon. Ian

    March 26, 2014

  • Alex

    Let's hope we can all fit in the venue, glad there is a cap though and of course I managed to get in. I am excited by the event and its subject matter, thank you for putting it all together.

  • Gabriel M.

    I wished I could join you but have to be in Seattle. I hope you will have another event soon :)

    February 24, 2014

    • Ian P.

      Hi Gabriel, we are planing on having 4 per year so as long as your a member you should get an email when the next one is announced. cheers. Ian.
