    If I were new to blogging and social media I would have found the panelists' tips to be very enlightening. All new WordPress users and developers should come to these events.

    Some of this was pretty basic stuff, but as long as there were folks that got something out of it (and there were), that's all that matters.

    Line-Up of Speakers was very good. Start time was published as 6:30, but it started at 7:00. Some of it was above my head, but I got enough out of it to make it worth the time invested.

    Sorry I wont be able to make it tomorrow night. You are not streaming this by any chance? I will follow the conversation on twitter at #WPMIA. I would imagine there will be plenty content, considering the topic :)

    Oh, I didn't figure it out, I just worked around it. Probably violated some sort of terms in the process, too!

    Glad you figured it out Mike!

    I'm asking over on Facebook, too, but does anyone here know how to use Pay Pal without creating a Pay Pal account? It used to work but I can't do that any more on multiple browsers. Is there some other way to pay for this meetup online without paying at the door?

    Hi Jackie, I looked at the agenda and it reminded me... You think we will ever do a meetup dedicated to Buddypress, etc for us owners of community sites?
