    Very well organized. A very efficient one-hour overview of current projects and innovative ideas in the ed tech realm. I'm glad I could join.

    The Ed-Tech Meetup Member Spotlight made my week! It's always so fun showcasing our members' projects and learning how teachers are implementing tech to enhance their practice. Thanks to our presenters, our community, our sponsors, and our supporters!

    Wow.... I wish I would have know about this a few hours sooner... I am visiting the bay area from Southern California right now and it looks like your meet-up is happening RIGHT NOW! Dang it! :(

    Looks like I'm not going to be able to make it up from the peninsula tonight, but I would still love hear more about the presentations - will anything be posted online?

    I would also still love to network. I'm an EdTecher with several years h.ed. experience with a very long list of technologies, disciplines, methods and pedagogies, and I'm interested in talking, consulting, building, and otherwise exploring the wonderful world of edtech with others. Send me a message if you want to chat.

    Hey all--I'm a first year student at Harvard Business School visiting San Francisco for my spring break and am hoping to connect with some folks in the ed tech space during the week. If you'd be up for sitting down with me to talk about what you do, I'd love to visit you at work / grab coffee during the week of March 12-16! Hit me up! <[masked]>
