    More than 30 minutes worth. Candid advice and shared wisdom of someone really clear about his role as a product manager.

      Agree. The thing I can't figure out is that when he described the Zynga PMs as being in their 20s...how do people so young know all the things he listed in his talk?

    Hey everyone, I'm Kim from kixeye and I'm organizing the event. I would like to clarify that the NDA just restricts you from sharing information you may see within out building. I any of you are familiar with ha mining companies we have a culture of open tables and whiteboard walls- and you are visiting the property during work hours. The meetup itself however, while you are in our 'canteen' area for the meetup you can take picture and record the talk- we have no issues with that. Again, you're visiting during work hours where you may run a cross some work material while heading to the bathroom and as a company we want to protect ourselves.

      Thanks for organizing this event, Kim! Unfortunately I won't be able to attend in person. Please take pictures and send them to post here!

      Will do!

    Just got the email about the NDA requirement. I understand every company has different needs but I've never seen this at a meetup. Don't understand why any speaker can't just share material not requiring NDA, especially at a rather non-technical meetup. Sorry if I'm "picking nits" but I'm deciding NOT to attend. Last thing I'd want to see is the open culture of Meetups overtaken by legal agreements for sharing experiences and knowledge.

      As a licensed attorney (AL) and a registered LDA (CA), I'd like to go on the record for disagreeing with this statement. I would like to see more legal agreements. Agreements everywhere. I carry NDAs with me. Long ones. I'm actually surprised by how short their NDA is. A lot more. There's IP everywhere. If you need one for your Meetups, pitches, impromptu coffee conversations, let me know...just saying...But in all seriousness, welcome to the real world of business. While we're on topic, why don't we all take a few minutes to read up on public disclosure and patent laws and how they work.

      November 19, 2013

    • Cindy F S.

      This is a great discussion, Christopher, and we have other attorneys in the community. We'll plan a meetup on IP and patent issues for startups early next year.

    Facebook also requires meetup attendees to sign NDAs http://bit.ly/I4buya

      Forgive the multiple typos. I'm trying to do this on my phone (fat fingers) . If you have questions email me at kim@kixeye

    • Cindy F S.

      Hi Kim, Thanks for the clarification - that's what I thought the NDA was for. I remember having to sign an NDA before meeting someone for lunch at their workplace and before interviews.

  • Cindy F S.

    Make sure you register on eventbrite to get in the door (meetup RSVP won't get you in) http://productin30atkixeye.eventbrite.com and tell them you found out about it from Startup Product meetup!
