4/8 Dinosaur Robots and more!

Geek out to 5 Minute Live Demos, Q&A, Bar, Munchies and 200 of your favorite new tech buddies.

We'll be mixing it up with a handful of some pretty interesting web tools, including how to rent  -- or put up for rent -- anything online, a search-within-video engine to help you better target ads; and a service to view that conference that you missed (or encode the conference you're holding); and an IT search tool that can index and digest data like a champ.   

And, we'll get hand's-on with the world's smallest computer and we'll meet Pleo -- the famous robotic dinosaur!   Touch him. He loves it.  Let him rub up against your leg.  He's got feelings too.   It's going to be fun!

Like I said -- it's a mix -- and it's all good.
