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. Fanpop – Founder Dave Lu Fanpop…

Photo Credit: Beau Liening Grab a bottle of bubbles at your local Longs or RiteAid, get outside and commence blowing.

Instead of filling it with air, try injecting a bit of hope and enthusiasm into each blow. Nice work….I can see the beginnings…

Beta: The San Francisco Web 2.0 Meetup/Launch Party

Written by Alison McNeill 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. I was able to talk with Christian beforehand and ask him about his motivation for the event: Q: What’s the inspiration for BETA? A: San Francisco lacked…

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,…

September SF NewTech Meetup

On the heels of the Silicon Valley NewTech Meetup in Palo Alto on Tuesday, I spent the day in San Francisco at the Social Media Club HQ specifically to attend my first SF event – well that and a million other things on the SF to do list. Organized by Joel Sacks, CNET and Marketing Strategist at BuzzShout, and Myles Weissleder, VP of Communications for Meetup, SF NewTech Meetup is similar in format to the Silicon Valley event, but targeted…
