    It was my first event, i enjoyed seeing the presentations. I thought it would be more about mingling, perhaps in another forem.

    As a business person, these tues (wed) eve sessions are starting to take on some of the things that sunk silicon alley last time- 2 of the 5 pitches I think had decidedly altruistic/non profit make the world wonderful themes- the others we'll make money from advertising, stupid- Not to say these are not good goals, but I wonder if these are representative of the community or filtered by the team a bit- Its a huge entreprenaur audience ( good ) and maybe its not meetups role to coach and educate but (opinion) shaping their minds and attitudes a bit might be a service to the community... ergo do the 5 business startups but add an adult component- maybe a speaker at the end on one or two topics-- good to hear scott set the you can't ask revenue model goals--

    if we want to grow tech in ny, then reach out- I am sure some of the SUN,IBM, execs would volunteer to speak on days they are in the city- Is someone reaching out to them?

    The NY Tech Meetup was awesome as usual. Check out my review and photos at http://www.sourban.net/node/69.

    The night was kind of lame. Presenters should NOT be allowed to continue without a real life demo of their product. No more videos with corny animations and a lame voiceover by the founder. Also the crowd has been too quiet the past few months, there used to be a lot more heckling and speaking up. This is New York, when did everyone become so quiet and domicile? I didn't notice a name change, but this has become the Business Pitch 2.0 Meetup, it would be great to have the companies actually talk about some of the technologies they are using and not just go on and on about potential business partnerships they are hoping/wishing to form. Seriously do we need another site to organize videos?

    Would really like to see more networking

    lots of good companies - some like the mushy gushy and styky had obvious privacy and photo rights issues but hey, it was interesting. The digicash product seemed interesting but the very thick accent of the presenter made it hard to understand. Since there are a lot of non-american tech entrepeneurs out there, perhaps Scott can gently (as gently as Scott can :-) convey that the presenter need not be the founder but someone who has a clear speaking voice that can be understood easily by a largely american audience.

    Better quality of demos this time. Still think the "networking" part is awkward at best in this venue and due to numbers of demos, meaningful Q&A is not really possible in time alloted.

    A couple of things:
    First, clearly the event wasn't sold out and yet the website claimed 500 people were scheduled to attend. Would suggest more truth in advertising.
    Second, the idea that you can only ask one question in an evening is silly. BTW, a few people asked more than one question.
    Lastly, business models or revenue generation is an important part of the entrepreneurial process. Excluding this question is strange to say the least.

    Always great presentations. Very inspiring.

    Better organized than previous events. I like the timer as well as the question guidlines. I just wish people would stop showing movies and show a demo of the actual product!

    This time it was much better and well organized. Even the applications that were demo-ed also very good.

    The guy got too much flak for showing a video rather than a true demo!

  • John W.

    Very, very well organized - great control of the individual speakers... and great encouragement of good atmosphere from the guy doing the event - instills a good vibrancy to thing...
