Yesterday I showed up for my first UnThursday meetup with Dave Winer at NYU.
I was a little apprehensive, because there hasn’t been any information coming out of those meetups and I wasn’t sure what the agenda was.
Turned out to be a really cool night. It was a small group, which I liked because as a newbie I could ask meta-questions and figure out what was going on. Richard Ziade, of Arc90 and Readability, told us the story of the bookmarklet and discussed Safari’s use for Reader.
During the meetup, I spent some time going through Arc90 Lab, where there are a bunch of code examples that look pretty useful.
I’ll definitely be a regular for these meetups, and I’m really excited about finding a bunch of cool, smart people to play with.
