It’s the middle of the day here in NY, and I’m still riding that “good feeling” wave from last night’s Bug+(bar+NYC) meetup. Yesterday afternoon we had counted the comments on the blog and on Facebook and guessed that 20-40 people would show up. Instead, we had somewhere closer to 100 roll through the doors, which pretty much had me apologizing to the waitresses every 45 seconds as I was constantly in their way trying to do demos and meet everyone who showed up.
We’ve got a few pictures online here, and Peter’s written up a thank you note as well. Here are a few of my favorites:
Thanks again to everyone who made it there. As I mentioned at the event, we’ll be opening up a beta signup process in the coming week(ish – just gotta polish off the system), which we’ll announce on the blog. Also, I’ve tried to find all the links to any other writeups (some with pix) here:
- Silicon Alley Insider
- David Cohn (yup, the LD alum himself – this was the first time we’d met in person!!)
- Benjamin Stein
- Online Video Watch
Oh yeah – I am working on some way to track incoming Bug+BLANK location requests, and will post something on the Bug blog once I have it figured out. Also should be within the next week or so!
