    Ryan Dahl is an excellent speaker. It was humorous when audience members were able to post anonymous comments on the screen during one section of the presentation.

    @Ben yeah, that's my bad. I made the mistake of assuming that once I bought the software that the recording's watermark would have been removed :(

    A little too basic.

    Is there a way for the video to not have that annoying watermark voice? How much does a full version of ustream producer cost?

    Mike has been filming past meetups - I'd address this question to Mike Tougeron directly.

    Any chance there will be a screen cast or video published?

    Thanks to Mike, Emily and Ryan from Joyent. This is going to be an historic presentation of Node to the PHP community. I've been amazed at the Node.js offerings and community and would encourage everyone looking to what the next revolution in server side technology is going to be to show up. I'd also encourage you to get a local build of Node on and try some of the offerings on github to see for yourself what Node is about. The IRC channel is extremely supportive.
