Everything in the past 9 months has been driven by the “down economy” theme, literally, everything. Spending, budgets, revenues, and now even words. Words aren’t cheap, so this is Demo 09 day 1, MakeMeSustainable style in bullet form. Apologies to companies that I don’t mention, there were a few interesting ones that I couldn’t cover because of work (demonstrator list here). Start, Demo 09.


Sunday night: sick in room with vicious fever and stomach flu.

Monday: Chris Shipley. Reset year, recession. No more large user growth, and then monetize. This year business plans that make sense. Venture is changing. Tightening LP’s, tightening purses on both sides seeking capital efficient companies.

Matt Marshall. DemoBeat for ongoing conversation. Smart grid conversation (yes!). Company demo’s I paid attention to.

Pixetell…webex on drugs.

CC Betty…smart email management, not a fan of the colors, like to product.

Zuora…monetize facebook applications…hell yes, someone has to make money in facebook!

Zipadi…take printed materials and put them online…love it, love the green component, love the demo, great guys too, hope they get funded.

eFormic…product specific co2 offsets. label with website and code. software embedded into company website. can choose project and see where project is. any product and service. provides branding and green PR. tight demo. still not sold on effectiveness of offsets.

blue buzz…blue tooth content delivery. uses hardware and software.

This evening, I am sick again with stomach flu. Not much use at the jam session. On to tomorrow.
