NY Tech Meetup December 2007 Recap w/video
Tonight was the last NY Tech Meetup of 2007. Great crowd as always – even in the cold! Things seemed very orderly this evening.
I’ve captured video of each presentation and the links are below. Sorry about the lighting – one day I will buy a real camcorder!
At the Social Networking meetup earlier this month, I cried out for better presentations. Tonight, three individuals came up to me after the demos were over and asked me to post the message again so here goes. BRING YOUR A GAME OR GO HOME. Your service might be great but if you can’t present it, no one will come up to you afterwards. With that said, overall these demos were better than the social networking set.
Here is my analogy for these 5-minute demos:
Imagine going to the red light district in Amsterdam. There are hot girls in the windows. Each of them knows they have 20-30 seconds to get you aroused enough that you want to go inside for some "fun". Think of your demo just like this. You have 5 minutes to arouse the attendees enough so they will want to come find you after the demos are over and learn more. Make sense?
Tonight’s presentations are:
- Ignighter Facebook Application
- Evolvist Green Web Site – not posting their video as the site isn’t live or accessible
- TheFunded VC Ratings and Reviews
- Kaltura Video Collaboration
- Unype – some kind of Google Map thingy
- Meetup Alliance – lets groups align together
Check out Sanford’s review as well.
