The conversations ranged from local tech news, startups, BitCoin, and Mac/iOS vs. PC/Windows. BitCoin was the big topic of the day. I even got to introduce myself and mention Kids In Touch.
As the meeting progressed, I started trying to enter notes about good ideas and websites into my reminder app( Due ) on my phone. Needless to say, that's hard to do and keep up with the conversation. So, I dug out the nice notebook we all received at Ng-Conf last month and scribbled away. Since so many other people were also pecking away at their screens trying to keep up, I decided to post some notes and links here. Hopefully, it will be a helpful resourece to everyone. Unfortunately, I've only got a small bit in here. If anyone has more notes or links, hit me up on Twitter to let me know.
