    The Twilio and the robot demo were simply amazing. They represented really unique companies and very interactive demos that went "beyond the presentation"

    Thanks to all of you who connected with me after the Meetup - the Texai is due for release in the near future, and I am following up with all of the emails I received after the event. If you want to learn more, go to http://www.willowgarage.com/pages/robots/texas/overview

    This was one of the best meetups in a long time. Nearly all the projects were cool/useful and there was actual tech being shown off. :-)

    Loved my first Tech Meetup. Walked out very inspired and impressed with how it was run, the demo's, the ideas. Great, well-organized group and event!

    This was my first NYTM and it didn't disappoint. I enjoyed seeing what local entrepreneurs are working on and the community's support for its people. And, I agree that the question "What's your business model?" should be banned from the event. These start-ups need more time to experiment with their product before they can answer that question.

    Love, love, love the event - and yes we need a bigger bar/space to network afterwards.

    Welcome my friends in my Meetup iam verry happy with you

    Demos were great, but is anyone else getting an influx of wrong numbers today? I've gotten three and can't help but think of my phone number scrolling down that screen last night. Curse you Twilio! Though, again, great demo.

    August 4, 2010

  • Zeb D.

    This was the best NYTM I've been to yet by far!

  • David M.

    great mix of techie/consumer-oriented companies presenting...loved the idea of asking for suggestions rather than Qs

    August 4, 2010

  • Lori P

    Always fun, always interesting, always enlightening!

    Sometimes questions may not be the most fully thought-out, articulated, or even relevant. However, the elegant thing to do would be to answer as best and briefly as possible, then move on, rather than humiliate or disparage the questioner just to get a laugh.

    Just can't get better than that. Congrats to all presenters for wonderful and inspiring presentations!!

    I posted a short review of the technology for small businesses here as well - http://smallbiztechnology.com/archive/2010/08/hottest-tech-in-nyc-summary-of.html

    Great Meet-up!
    If anyone is interested in learning how to develop and deploy native mobile apps using HTML,CSS and Javascript across multiple devices in a single development effort let me know. I'm with WorkLight - an exciting start-up focused on multi channel mobile app development.

    The demo's by the startups were very interesting to watch. What I would recommend from a networking point of view is a space that is a little more formal / geared toward meeting new people instead of a a dark, cramped pub. From the perspective of somebody new in the city wanting to connect with new businesses people, this is not effective. Integrating the meetup app that was presented could be a good way to assist people to network. Just an idea. Otherwise thanks for a good function.

    Yes, I was thinking two locations as well. They could be divided up in a lot of creative ways; not sure what the best way to split things up would be yet. Thoughts?

    August 4, 2010

  • uday k.

    Good session. Enjoyed thoroughly...

    August 4, 2010

  • K. Krasnow W.

    Fabulous! Loved the real-time coding and the robot for pure tech. The rant and the debate with the music industry exec were quintessential NY spirit.

    Based on the waiting-list line, even Skirball's not big enough for long.

    August 4, 2010

  • Erica H.

    i think it was the best NYTM in the year-and-a-half i've been going! inspiring demos, efficient pace, few ads, minimal technical problems, and random comedy. double thumbs up :)

    August 4, 2010

  • Renee

    This presentation was much more interactive than others in the past (such as Twilio's presentation), making the experience much more engaging and enjoyable!

    August 4, 2010

  • Tony B.

    Hey everyone, I've been organizing the afterparties for a little while now and agree about the overcrowding issue. The afterparty started out as something that a small group of people did after the NYTM, and now it's ballooned into something that's much larger than can fit in any single bar.

    If anybody has a lead on an affordable location we could use that could handle a huge crowd a short walking distance from Skirball, please let me know!

    The demos were awesome but a slightly more more time for networking would be great. Perhaps a reception before the event for an hour?

    This was the best of the 3 NYTM's I've been to. Highlights were the showmanship of the Twilio demo and the cool Skype robots.

    i'd give 5 stars, but the networking event afterwards was very disappointing! you should keep the event PRIVATE! and not mix in public-people! i didnt know who went and who didn't go to the event!! make it an after-event where i meet 100% meetup-people!

    Really loved last nights event. As the CEO of an media company (http://www.bizbash.com) that serves the event industry, my feeling is that events done properly are the really the programming of human interaction. This one was accomplished successful programming with a great user interface. It was first class, authentic, interactive, informative, very human and friendly. Face to face events are just in its infancy fueled by the power of the internet. Fantastic Job.

    Interesting. Only my 2nd meetup - really happy to start meeting New York based technology folk. I like the chance to imagine and to explore out-of-the-box thinking for a few hours. Unique place and people!

    NY Tech meetup is awesome..

    All Demos really interesting and After Party can be much better, if they make it in BIG Place where people can talk comfortably.

    a)Nate forgot to introduce himself (important for the new attendees)
    b)delayed start not ideal but well contextually explained
    c)John from Twilio undercut impressiveness--crowd effect--of his demo by not emphaszing everyone should Turn on their ringers d)Waveryly Inn afterparty too cattle-penn like

    August 4, 2010

  • Trace C.

    This was easily one of the better NYTM that I've been too. Great company presentations and amazing LIVE demos! Nate was also really funny!
