October 2006 STIRR 1.7 Founder’s Mixer

I recently had the opportunity to sit down for lunch with Sanford Barr and Dan Arkind. I’ve also held a few conversations with Joanne Wan and Sean Ness to discuss STIRR. Their vision for STIRR is united as they bring together the people driving the new tech economy forward. STIRR is by far the industry’s biggest, concentrated, most powerful, must-attend tech mixer out there, and it is only continuing to grow. Why? Because they control the attendee registration – invitees,…

S.F. Bay Area Web 2.0 September Meetup

Written by Alison McNeill I had the pleasure of attending the S.F. Bay Area Web 2.0 executive group meeting, at Plug and Play Tech Center in San Jose. Shobeir Shobeiri, business relationship manager for Plug and Play, organized and hosted the event. When I asked him about his inspiration for starting such a group he told me he wanted to, “create a group for executives to grow together.” Simple enough. He continued, “Our group is intended to grow a community…

STIRR It Up! Founder’s Mixer 1.6 Raises the Bar

This was STIRR ’s sixth event and there was no doubt that it was the biggest to date. In fact they had to move from Blue Chalk in Palo Alto to The Whisper Lounge in SF in order to accomodate the growth. In discussions with Sean Ness and Joanne Wan, estimates were easily placed at about 225. 225…? Kudos STIRR team! STIRR is an effective mix of “live” social and business networking among a highly qualified crowd of tech innovators,…

Lunch 2.0 ‘Web Expo’ Blowout at Hitachi Data Systems

Yesterday, I attended the Lunch 2.0 event at Hitachi Data Systems in Santa Clara (Isn’t everything better with “2.0” after it?). Jeremiah Owyang organized and hosted the event and credit also goes out to Mark Jen for starting the Lunch 2.0 event series. Your host, Jeremiah Owyang – Photo credit: Scott Beale / Laughing Squid Similar to STIRR and the SV and SF NewTech Meetups, the concept is really about bringing together the people behind the new “Silicon Valley” economy…

September Silicon Valley NewTech Meetup

Your host, Vincent Lauria Last night’s Silicon Valley NewTech Meetup was definitely the biggest yet. Vincent “Vinnie” Lauria again took center stage to welcome guests, which included VCs, engineers, programmers, entrepreneurs, bloggers, and plenty of CEOs. The evening’s lineup included four up-and-coming Web startups, some more well known than others (and maybe one that really isn’t a startup per se). And interestingly enough, all seem to have found their niche for creating a loyal customer-base. For those of you too…

YouSendIt – IGetIt – An easy way to send large files online

Last month at STIRR, I was introduced to YouSendIt, “the leader in file delivery.” It’s an interesting service that allows anyone to send large files, securely, to contacts through email, bypassing any filters or limits set in place by admins on other side of the firewall. For a couple of years, I’ve used a similar service from Dropload – basically, when I needed to send files in excess of 5-10MB. According to Dropload’s site, it is a place for you…

TechCrunch 7 – Web 2.0 Party of the Summer

Photo Credit: Scott Beale, Laughing Squid Unfortunately I had to miss what turned out to be an amazing party. I had to sneak-in one last camping getaway with the family before the end of summer. Laurence (Lo) Toney, VP Marketplace Operations, art.com, attended TechCrunch 7 and was gracious enough to provide us with his wrap-up report. Lo Toney, Guest Blogger, PR2.0 It was labeled the Web 2.0 party of the summer – Michael Arrington’s TechCrunch party or TechCrunch 7 for…

Web 2.0, Bubble 2.0, Enterprise 2.0 – Differences and Similarities from a Marketer’s Perspective

If you were around Silicon Valley during the 90s, then I’m sure the current Web2.0 frenzy seems familiar. If you’re fresh out of college, or if you’re a recent transplant, welcome to Bubble 2.0. Not that this bubble is going to burst with the same “pop” as 1.0, but it does share all too familiar nuances of hype and misdirection. There are even calls to ditch 2.0 for 3.0 already. Let’s just assume that everyone here understands the history behind…

SES, Google Dance, STIRR – What a week!

I have held some of the most refreshing conversations at SES in San Jose this week, as well as attended incredibly insightful and helpful sessions. More to report once I can catch my breath. In the mean time, take a look at Lee Odden’s Online Marketing Blog for solid show summaries. Google Dance V was a blast last night – although I had to eat afterwards because the food wasn’t appetizing (AT ALL) – sorry Google Chefs! Tonight, from 7:30…
