Nate Aune’s partial audio from the meeting and blog post, where he says:

This was only the second time I attended the Boston Media Makers, but I felt strangely familiar and already connected with the other participants. Maybe it’s because many of us befriended each other on Twitter so in the month between each meeting, we are still following what each other is doing

We had a great meeting this month with a lot of new people. After 1/2 hour of mingling in the front room, we set a 3 minute timer and went around the table and heard about what everyone is doing. There was time for questions and discussion and we ended just at 12:00 so a kids birthday party could take over the room.
