Web Two Oh Chronicles – November Silicon Valley NewTech Meetup

The November Silicon Valley NewTech Meetup was held at the AOL campus in Mountain View this month with over 100 entrepreneurs, VCs, bloggers, programmers and executives in attendance.

Kudos to Vincent Lauria for growing into a monthly must-attend meetup.

This time around, we tried something a bit different – video instead of pictures! Alison McNeill was out there interviewing the presenters to help viewers get a better sense and perspective of each featured company.
