Unlike LinkedIn, where you can have 500 contacts and ZERO relationships, Meetup.com seems to be doing something right. I co-hosted an event at New York Life for The New York Creative Group.
Mostly Graphic Designers, some videographers and internet marketing people showed up to New York Life’s offices at 120 Broadway (they were kind enough to let us use one of their seminar rooms) for the get together on a rainy Friday night. About 30 people showed and there were some really terrific people who were all looking to leverage their talents.
It was the first meetup for the group started by ReelWeb’s Peter Marino.
