How was your experience?
Overall, a good event. However, The Commonwealth Club spent way too much time self-promoting and doing introductions. The female moderator who was "in conversation" with Sam Yagan was not memorable except for her annoying laugh. Sam Yagan though is one smart guy, and his ideas about online dating are intriguing. He stole the show: could tell a good story, handled himself well on-the-spot,and was very personable in a geeky, math major kind of way. Of course he won't give up their mysterious algorithms! But he did give some insight to the group as to what the data crunchers behind the scenes at his two dating site companies are doing. The complimentary cocktails and munchies offered by the Commonwealth Club after the talk were also nice.
