    I think there should be a spin off meetup for people who ask, "What is your business model?" that I don't have to attend.

    Good event, as usual! It would really help to start on time and get right down to it. It's frustrating sit for an extra half hour beyond the called-for start time, and if it keeps hapenning, people will start arriving later and later.

    Is there a way we can get people's full names when they present?

    Very exciting to see so many people enthusiastic about tech. I was dissapointed that the number of people who could post for stuff at the podium was limited - that's a big part of what people come for!

    Presentations were good. There wasn't quite as much random interaction as I had hoped. Look forward to meeting more people / discussing more next time.

    Interesting, tho after touting the fact that the inventor of social networks would be there, had hoped to hear him talk about the evolution of social networks rather than ONLY talk about his latest money making effort. Also, there's gotta be a better way to promote networking at these events. Perhaps the announcement/come to my event stuff should be featured as people are walking in, so that true networking can occur when the five or six presentations are over.

    Would like to see presenters spend more time on the underlying business and revenue models. Answer the question: how will this be a viable business?

    None of the demos were bad! Everyone seemed to have practiced their presentations, and the tech and ideas were interesting.

    Great job on keeping things moving. The fast pace is a nice change from other tech groups.

    Another great bunch of companies. I think however its better to show startups and small companies, then companies like Streambase that already have a large userbase and are very established.

    The mix of presenters was excellent. We could have had a few more announcements (I didn't want to make one but I did want to hear what others had to say). Really enjoy the meetup.

    ok, presentations ran a little long. I preferred it when scott was tougher on the time limits.

    Excellent mix of types of companies. Good idea not to rate them.

    Scott's a fantastic host, and the presentations were great.

    six seems to be the magic number, in terms of # of presentations. eight - or seven and a half - were too many

    August 2, 2006

    The pacing was much better than last month and the quality of presentations was really good. I'd like to see more positive feedback and less bashing though. Perhaps there should also be a pre-event cocktail hour so that people could socialize.

    We appreciated the opportunity to present We?ve Met (www.wevemet.com) and would love to hear your feedback. Also, we are looking for a Director of Marketing and a Director of Technology so please let us know if you are interested or know anyone who might be. Send comments and/or resumes to [masked]
