    I like the knowledge I gained from here today. Even tho I'm not thinking to do start-up, I was still interested into hearing how to get resources from Elancers.
    The talks by Charles was simple but something we tend to forget. Although I felt that it was a quite long talk than we were expecting, I like the contents. but it could be shorter....I have heard from Thomas that he also hosts network events for artists. I'm more interested into it. Thanks for hosting and it was quite good that we got a lot of gifts but didn't have to pay for food! You are pretty generous! I have never met the event host who don't let me pay for the food ahaha
    I will see you soon!
