My notes at the Boston Web Innovators Meeting on May 8th

I took a few notes at the Boston Web Innovators meeting #6 (at Hotel@MIT) during the brief “main dish” presentations. I was surprised there was no Q&A at the end of each presentation. Next time I’ll spend more time talking to people before the presentations. I didn’t realize the talks this time around would be shorter than the last event I attended (#3 or #4).
