TC50 = Snooze Fest

There simply weren’t enough interesting companies to make this interesting at all. In a very transparent move, the organizers tried to get some sizzle by having B-List Hollywood actor Ashton Kutcher present his latest “company” which is actually a blog with animation attached. Boring. 

One thing that did come out of this is that it clearly defined things. DEMO is where actual technology happens, TC50 is where parties and fake Web 2.0 “companies” show off their wares to bored journalists and scenesters. It may have been “fun” if you’re into that sort of thing, but in terms of actually introducing innovation and interesting companies, it was a total dog.

  1. I would take a look at the video presentations Swype, Tonchidot, Yammer, fotonauts, VideoSurf, Atmosphir, TrueCar and GoodGuide and write another post! 🙂
