    Hmmm...Muxtape was featured on this blog around the same time as the meeting: http://rugby.com/thebuzz/blog.aspx?id=d95a17c6-75be-42b4-bbe4-ba210d12ba86

    Was more crowded than I'd expected and was surprised to see so many people standing.

    I thought the crowd was great! As a 20-something in tech, it was nice to go to a tech networking event and meet people in my age range, as well as some more established tech folks.

    a couple too many presenters, 5-6 would be just right, it was a lot to absorb in short time

    What a great group and venue. Well organized and fun too. Thanks for letting me demo http://www.twiddla.com/ while I was in town, it was a real honor. Hope to catch another one while in town next time!

    This was my first meeting and I thought it was great. The presentation we mostly interesting and it was nice have time to speak directly with the presenters at the end.

    April 2, 2008

  • Peter K.

    A good set of presentations.

    Would suggest putting the company names on the column placards when doing the break-out sessions. A lot of us have no idea who the people on the signs are or what they look like and 5 minutes often isn't enough time to figure that out and go to the right column later. Really need the company names.

    Make this more substantial. Charging $10 but not adding more value isn't helpful. This meetup is too large to make really personal connections, so finding a way to add value in another way would be great.

    Excellent selection of companies, all came well prepared, all stuck to the 5 minute time frame, it flowed smoothly from one to the next. The event was well prepared and well executed.

    My first Tech Meetup and I thought it was great. Cool idea to have the speakers stationed around the room afterward. Suggestion: in addition to posting the name of the speaker at each location, post the project name as well.

    Great companies...great logistical improvements (roaming mikes...allowing people to as about the business model)

    Scott mentioned some "growing up" that NY Tech Meetup would be doing. That "discussion" should happen on kluster.com, which is a perfect forum for soliciting feedback and allowing tech meetup members to make decisions.

    I really enjoyed all the presenters, the meetup was very informative and exciting as usual. My only complain about this particular meeting was that since there were more presenters than usual, it felt a bit rushed. I would have preferred to stay an extra half hour in order to give each presenter a couple of extra minutes. I'm not sure what the agreement is with the venue, so I'm not sure if this would have even been an option, but it's a thought. I prefer to keep the presenter count lower and have a less rushed presentation.

    It was excellent, well organized and the presentations were great. I liked trendrr, donorschoose.org, kluster and Twiddla

    April 2, 2008

  • Joshua E. R.

    It was hard to see the speakers based on the arrangement of chairs. The rushed nature of it was hard to figure out details, but it was fine for getting a general overview.

    April 2, 2008

  • Nichelle S.

    great presentations

    April 2, 2008

  • Anthony De R.

    Excellent mix of presenters, I would definitely come again.

    I posted my review of the presented producs here...

    Is there a NY Tech Meetup website?

    April 2, 2008

  • Anthony De R.

    First time Meet Up for me. I was shocked to find Ben Satterfield presenting Twiddla, as we grew up a block away from each other. How wonderfully random. Looking forward to the next Meet Up!

  • Steven L.

    I'm a recent graduate and on a pretty tight budget, so the increased fee will make it harder for me to attend. Speakers this month were good, especially Twiddla and Muxtape!

  • Luis H.

    Awesome!

    Great presenters, great space. Thanks!

    I really liked Twiddla prototype. It's really amazing what could be done with scripting technology. However a bigger challenge would be to build a company around it. Also DonorsChoose.org is a great idea. I always disliked the fact the one cannot chose how money is spent when donating to a conventional charity. This is the real deal!! Donors chose where the money is going.
    ADSDAQ reminded me of the securities trading business. Very clever, I don't know enough about online advertising, however spend a lot of time working on securities trading systems and I got the concept right away!!

    Great presenters, as usual. Unfortunately the presenters are just not enough; needs more debrief, discussion, collaboration and interaction. Otherwise, might as well watch it on youtube.

    lots of presenters; a few dull, but many good

    Not bad but it would be nice to foster networking opps as well

    Meeting was very good. Thought it would have better results if all the presenters were from the same market segment. This was done in a prior meetup and seemed to work well.

    Very cool. Always enjoy these things.

    Another group of interesting presenters. Nice balance of "commercialness"

    I have been out of this scene for a while so it is nice to get motivated to "Im gonna start the next billion dollar startup" again!

    I've noticed that a lot of the seats are empty the day of the meetup. Is that because people say yes and don't show?
