February Meeting

We had a great Seattle Mobile meeting Monday night. Thanks to Scott Wallin from Metaplay and Colin Prior of Reaxion and everyone who attended. The topic was "Mobile Gaming" and Scott and Colin shared their insights and experiences of running mobile gaming companies. We had a nice turnout of a little over 35 by my count and the two presentations balanced out well giving everyone a lot of time to network and meet new people. We had a lot of new faces this month and I hope all of you continue to come each month.

Thanks again to GoldPocket Wireless for sponsoring the food and the beer.
