FEEDBACKS

  • « I need to give a shout out to everyone that factored into my fantastic memories from this weekend. So many interesting conversations (and the fact that a bunch of drunk people have any interest in sitting around listening to me share thoughts about blockchain and other nerdy stuff is mind blowing). » @Sandirose.
  • « We still have no idea which way DESO is going to go. But what we do know is that we are surrounded by some amazing folks, and we needed to build this. @mechelllord, @missKatiann, @cateColgan and @WilliamLaurent all put in a tremendous amount of work to put this thing together, and we are very grateful for everything they’ve done. » @MikeGoldberg.
  • « It was wonderful. I had the best time. Meeting everyone in person is like a dream come true. DeSonians are even better people in person. My favorite party was Wendy Leigh (@wendyleigh) surprising me and showing up in the states for the meetup. The one person who made the most impact on me was @DOZ. He’s just the coolest person ever. And @CassiusCuvee is the sexiest man alive on DeSo. I cannot finish this review without giving a special shout out to Cate Colgan, Mechell Lord et William Laurent for putting the event together for all of us. I can’t wait for the next one. » @NirvanaHTX.
  • « The first thing I realized was that I was surrounded by some really smart people, with no qualms about making the first gesture of goodwill. So impressed with the conversations I had, and seeing how much depth there was to each of these folks.
    @CassiusCuvee Not sure if he is a rapper turned brainiac, or brainiac turned rapper, but spend a few minutes in a room with him and you’ll realize — he’s got the gift. And it was a hell of a lot of fun watching him experience an Oculus for the first time.
    @Sandirose is scary smart. Not so much in an intimidating way, but it was pretty inspiring. She’s done her homework. I haven’t formulated the words that can describe her well enough, so I’ll just leave it to you to get to know her (hint: do it).
    Would have loved to spend more time talking to @kad because I think we share a similar vision about what what the Metaverse really is, and what it could be. But now we know that.
    @ThePennyTrader had never been on a plane before. Never left his state before. He decided this was important enough to take that step. Now was the time. I admire his courage. Imagine the effect this experience (and the others leading from this) will have on him. I feel that. @MikeGoldberg.
  • @adotmays: « The highlight for me was to see DJ Murkury who is steadily becoming legendary in the EDM scene. I helped him setup his sound and we pushed the limit on the bass. Ayla Croft the podcaster was there and of course Wendy and Clay Perry in the flesh — wow. I heard they are getting hitched. DeSo rockstar couple. I had stopped by to see Mechell a few weeks prior on my way to Miami — and she is an inspiration in many ways. Sandi Rose was there and she had a wonderful energy as well. just worked her tail off to make it all happen. Cassius Cuvee? What a talented visionary — he had a real energy around him. And Cyrus Abraham I have so much respect for him. His ability to stay calm when leading a clubhouse room is impressive, a great leader. It’s always nice to be around forward thinking people and that’s what I saw. An amazing group of forward thinking people. Many thanks and respect for Mechell who does so much for the community — she worked so hard. »
@CassiusCuvee, NirvanaHTX and @MechellLord
  • « Anecdotes, oh man… what happens in Tampa stays in Tampa, but there were plenty of shenanigans and tomfoolery.
    Was really cool making some new friends and meeting old ones, been waiting for it for a while.
    The meetup reinforced existing relationships and set the stage for a couple new ones. It was another example of how my time here has been well-spent, as as much as we do this for the money, the real benefits are the relationships and community we’re building.
    Really looking forward to the next few if I can make them. Think there’s a San Fran and Vegas in the lineup. I’d highly recommend to new and old alike, both in real human age and platform account age, to attend if you’re in this for the long run, very well worth it. » @znmead
