Collaboration in Romance, Video and Meetup

Collaboration was the theme at last night's fine NY Tech Meetup at IAC corporate headquarters in Chelsea.

Kaltura's Shay David pitched this hot new "Wiki meets Video editing" tool that enables multiple users to edit videos and graphics. Kaltura won rave reviews at the recent Tech Crunch conference. It's a really cool group video editing product that deserves more attention from the press.

Pete Kamali pitched the IgNighter site, which enables "group dating". And, Scott, our organizer and leader, pitched a new Meetup feature called the Meetup Alliance that will allow Meetups to organize among themselves (and beyond geographic borders). A Tech Meetup Nation, you bet.
