Met Peter Vesterbacka Of Rovio Of Angry Birds Monday Evening

That is why you want to show up for events. I had no idea he was going to be there. I guess I did not read up the details on the event before I showed up. But it was awesome. It has to have been one of the best MeetUps I ever went to. There was Peter, the biggest name in mobile games, and there was live music, and there was free food - I ate a whole bunch of baby tomatoes.

Events: Week Of October 3

Peter said Angry Birds was "an overnight success in that" they had 51 flop games before they came up with Anngry Birds. Or maybe it was 52 flop games, one of the above.
