Last night I attended the del.icio.us birthday bash at the monstrous Yahoo headquarters, and yes, it was quite delicious! This was very different from previous events I have gone to in that it was bigger, more relaxed and there was tons of delicious food! Sorry, I’ll try to use a different adjective for the rest of the article.

Shutterfly Hits the Street with IPO – Web 1.0 Still Has Legs


Online photo sharing and printing service Shutterfly raised $87 million in an IPO today, closing up 3.7% at $15.55 per share, reaching a ceiling of $16.73, according to VentureBeat.

Marshall Kirkpatrick of TechCrunch observed, “In a time when IPOs are among the least common liquidity events enjoyed by Web 2.0 startups, for a photosharing site to remain independent and go public is interesting relative to all the startups we profile here.”

Welcome and opening remarks by Chris Shipley, Executive Produce, DEMO Conferences

Live from DEMOfall 2006 9/26/06

It’s time for a Ballroom Blitz as the music blared and the lights dimmed. In a dramatic fashion, images from previous events cycled through on the two gigantic screens on either side of the stage, leading up to Chris Shipley’s arrival.

Her presence, as always is nothing less than impressive.

Live from DEMOfall 2006 Monday 9/25/06

Today was a day of rehearsals, pavilion setup and a presenter’s briefing courtesy of the DEMO cast and crew.

After setup, we had a bit of time to kill, and then it was off to the 6 p.m. event reception. Talk about pulling out all of the stops! It was an incredible mix of demonstrators, attendees and media – along the harbor outside the Sheraton, which also partly bordered the poolside with lively waterfalls.

It’s 9/24, and DEMO is about to launch. In fact, I’m already in San Diego and we just finished-up our rehearsal.

In case you have never been to a DEMO event, they’re technically “THE” launchpad for many, many leading companies, includuing Palm, HandSpring, and eTrade. Presenters have only six minutes to present their company and new product/service in front of the industry’s most prominent players.

I attended the launch party for Beta’s Web 2.0 Meetup in San Francisco. Christian Perry, founder and CEO of Zaptix, put the whole thing together and it was held in the heart of downtown at the Bar of Contemporary Art (boca). Funny thing though, I didn’t see any art.

Read TechCrush Crushed? Over at Stowe Boyd’s /Message

Stowe wrote an excellent post that brings back recent memories re: the Web 2.0 trademark fiasco and the ensuing PR fallout for O’Reilly and CMP . .

Recently launched TechCrush , which was inspired by Stowe in a previous post, TechMunch Begets TechCrush , has temporarily ceased posting due to a potential trademark conflict with TechCrunch. Although, I personally preferred TechMunch over TechCrush…

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.

SF Bay Area Web 2.0 Executive Group

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 of people in the Web 2.0 realm.”
