Did you miss Mobile Monday?

No worries, Matt Caldecutt of Paint the Town Red posted a wonderful recap, which I'm reblogging in full (with his permission, like all good bloggers do):

MobileMonday Global hosted its inaugural event in Brooklyn’s DUMBO neighborhood or, as the Carrot Creative team would prefer it be called, New York City’s Digital District on (you guessed it) Monday night [Editor’s Note: Yes, I have noticed that they’re even checking in there now using that name for the neighborhood.]. Billed as Mobile Monday Brooklyn or #MoMoBk on Twitter, the event consisted of networking (with beer provided by venture capital firm RRE Ventures) and eight presentations by New-York City based developers [Editor’s Note: The invitation actually said “local NYC and Brooklyn developers”, but since the organizer hails from Boston, I’ll cut her some slack for not realizing that they’re the same city.]

Since I described what was presented elsewhere, I’ll stick to some general observations about the event here and, of course, make a note of whom I saw. First, the DUMBO Loft is a great venue. It’s large and easily accommodated the 100 or so attendees. I seriously thought it smelled like paint, but I’ll let that slide. The free drinks were a nice touch, but would it really have killed the organizers to get some food? It didn’t have to be passed hors d’oeuvres, but cheese and crackers would have been nice. Lastly, why wasn’t there a live Internet connection for presenters? We don’t typically do Powerpoint presentations at technology events here. But again, it was their first event so we’ll see how they do at the next one.
