I would like to see more meetups stream their content and make it available both for their attendees and for people thinking about attending their meetups. I think this is uncovered territory and that more folks should be doing this at their local events. I am a big advocate for exposure and making your presence known in the community and I feel that a lot of developers are just not doing so well at marketing. I am not a marketer but as a small business owner I am realizing more and more that exposure, being an advocate and making your skills known is something folks like me need to do more of.
