    I think Sudha takes her tasks very seriously. She went many extra miles and ensured smiles all around. I liked being there and would need to play with my calendar a bit to ensure that I am able to attend all

    The networking opportunities at this event were poor because of the set-up of the room. Attendees grabbed pizza and soda and then sat down at the tables. Consequently, it was impossible to speak with anyone new. In the future, you should put the pizza/sodas in another room and/or rope off the tables so that people have to stand and mingle.

    In addition, the company presentations were almost all weak. The presenters had a hard time explaining what their companies/services actually did. I would suggest requiring further preparation.

    You guys are 2 for 2! It was great. The room had plenty of space. Great demos, speaker, and panelists. Food, beverages, and dessert were above and beyond the norm. Good crowd, too.

    There was a lot of stuff tonight which helped to understand oAuth and Twitter. This meetup definitely gave a good amount of perspective from demos, a presentation, and a panel. And the food wasn't bad either!

    Good idea to bring in remote presenters. The bumpy start was not a problem-- still good idea. Jesse took a while to get going to the meat of his talk-- not a technical problem. Abusing everyone with too many tweets may need some rethinking? Turning meeting into a spam machine is not good.

    Any chance to discuss the new proposed ReTweet API, too?
