Crunching Naked

Link: http://www.techcrunch.com/2006/02/18/thank-you-for-coming-to-techcrunch-5/

Once again, Mike Arrington's generosity led to a splendid party. Techcrunch and these parties have become the signature for Web2.0 events.

The Naked Conversations TechCrunch Party is now officially overend quotation
-- Mike Arrington at 2:01 a.m.

I left well before Mike posted that, but not before I got to hook up with some folk I knew and meet some folk for the first time. Mike's events are always great for networking.

  • Of course the whole point of the party was to pick up another copy of Naked Conversations [Buy the bookNaked Conversations] and have it signed by the authors, Shel Israel and Robert Scoble. Mine was signed by Shel, but Robert was out "checking on the food". While I had met Shel and Robert before, and exchanged email and blog comments with them, this was my first opportunity to talk to Shel for a bit. He is indeed as nice a guy as his card proclaims.
  • I saw Andrea and, later Ethan Stock of Zvents, both of whom I had met at the Riya Launch Party.
  • Buzz Bruggeman was there, as was Bill Daul, both of whom I had met at ANZA. Bill introduced me to Douglas Engelbart. Both Doug and my father were among the first radar men in World War II, though I don't think they knew each other then.
  • I was interviewed for a podcast by Michael Johnson of PodTech News - I'll link to it when it's released.
  • Alex Moskalyuk of Yahoo!Tech and I had a good talk about tagging analysis and corporate significance.
  • I met Andy of Microsoft, whom Bill describes as a bright young fellow.
  • And I chatted for a bit with Brad Meador from ClearContext who is seeking to change the way you use email.
  • Reintroduced myself to Scott Beale from Laughing Squid.
  • Waved to Marc Canter and spoke briefly with Dave Winer

It was a great time. Mike, thank you and your sponsors very much for your generosity.
