"There’s something special when an online community meets in real life. Bonds formed over a mutual interest become cemented as you put a face to a Twitter or Product Hunt handle." – Erik Torenberg
We agree. Last week, we hosted 1,000+ Product Hunters at our Official San Francisco meetup, complete with a LED ping pong table, free-flowing LaCroix and Philz, and VR games. The pictures look dope.
We even gave away a CryptoKitty, one of the infamous blockchain-based digital cats that broke Ethereum this summer. 👀
