It was hump day in the middle of Social Media Week and the tech scenesters (that’s you) came out enforce for one of the biggest and best SF New Tech’s to date. I’m still buzzing from it!
We’d like to give a big thanks to Superfeedr, Bonvoy, Soundtrckr, LikeMinds, Amadesa, Talenthouse for coming out to strut their stuff!
And, without question, we are thrilled to be working with some of the best companies on earth who’ve stepped up to sponsor our amazing event and community.
The next SF New Tech is scheduled for 2/17 and the theme is "working smarter". Final details coming soon. You’d be well-served to follow us on Twitter @sfnewtech if you’d like to be clued-in on how to score free or highly discounted tickets. (You’re also invited to follow me on Twitter @mylerdude for meaningless drivel and unsubstantiated blather on nothing in particular.)
Without further ado, here are some key links (and tidbits) from the big event on Wednesday night:
1) The "People’s Choice" Winners, only Geekier! See who won over our hearts and minds …. and who didn’t.
2) Check out the 60 Second Spots! Folks are hiring! Seeking partnerships! More!
3) Thanks to Matthew Silvey, photos are up on Flickr (tag: #sfnt) and are also posted to the SF New Tech Group on Facebook. Join the group and tag early and often!
4) CALlinnovates.org, one of SF New Tech’s newest sponsors, announced their launch and some awesome poll data from stage. Like "iPhone users like Jerry Brown for Gov, BlackBerry users like Meg Whitman"
5) See the night as it unfolded thanks to the archived live stream from Justin.tv
6) If you’d like to follow up with Amadesa, the good folks who picked up the tab for awesome El Tonayense tacos last night, please feel free to contact Jay Sahourieh, who did the demo, directly at email@example.com or 415-690-3425.
Also of note…
David Siegel, my good friend, fellow geek and author of Creating Killer Web Sites and Futurize Your Enterprise, has spent the last two years investigating the semantic web, asking what it is, why businesses need it, and how it will appear. The book is called Pull, published by Portfolio Press. It’s all about making the switch from pushing information at consumers to letting them pull it. Siegel combines his own vision for a web of data with a nontechnical overview of what’s happening today and how it will change our lives tomorrow. Business people, technologists, VCs, and entrepreneurs will find plenty of new ideas here. You’re invited to visit the web site for the book to read Siegel‘s blog and learn more about pull at www.ThePowerOfPull.com
