    You guys rock! Better and better every month. I wish people in the back were more considerate of presenters though ;)

    Looking forward to the next meetup!

    Meetup was really great. Loved learning about Vine, Animoto, and 1 Second Every Day. One strong suggestion - next time, make sure to have a microphone. Voices on the whole didn't really carry. I was in the back, and I had a hard time hearing what was being said. Looking forward to the next one!
