    One of the best yet. Standing room only. Thanks everybody!

    Aaron does a great job facilitating the room, the technology and most importantly, the people and their ideas. I learned about 3 great start ups featured and the history of Meetup from one of the cofounders. I met interesting, intelligent people and left feeling optimistic and enlightened. I recommend this group to students, start ups, coders, investors, engineers, or anyone who wants to stay on top of what is currently happening in technology.

    Great hearing Matt talk about Meet-Up and how the chips fell in his quest to make the company everything it turned out to be. Great time meeting and re-connecting with new people - too bad the Jets blew it!
