SF New Tech is San Francisco’s largest, longest-running, and most loved technology showcase. It didn’t start that way. It took years of hard work from its creator, Myles Weissleder, to get the show to that point. I met Myles more than five years ago after I attended my first SF New Tech event and was really impressed with how he followed up with all the attendees. I ended up writing an article entitled “A great example of conference follow up.” Since then I’ve attended dozens of SF New Tech events and was honored to be invited by Myles and Outlook.com to cover the third leg of their event New Tech Tour in Las Vegas.
I chatted with Myles about the event, what it is, and why it’s on tour. In the video is also Tony Stilling of Microsoft, who explains why Outlook.com is proud to support both SF New Tech and New Tech on Tour.
