    This Meetup was great! Adam Lashinsky had some very insightful answers to Derek's questions and made me think about Apple in a new way. Met some really interesting people there too!

    Great author, great event. The interviewer channeled the voice of the millenial gen, & did a pretty good job. The audience could have been engaged more if the Meetup had, for example, asked people to fill out cards in advance with questions. Maybe that's not likely to add much, since most of the audience hadn't yet read the book, and the interviewer acted as if he was already maxed out
