When Democracy Meets Technology and Camp

Published by at 11:37 pm under tech trends,TechView

When I’m not ruminating on conspiracies in central Asia, I can often be found at local tech events in Vancouver enjoying the company of fellow entrepreneurial-minded geeks. My roundup in Techvibes from DemoCamp last week, where tech start-up people got to tell other tech start-up people why they’re awesome. Highlight of the evening:

Honourable mention must go to Ed Levinson from Analusis, mostly because he was just so darn entertaining, in the tradition of manic street preachers. (Sadly, Ed didn’t actually get to pitch his idea. It went like this):

“My fellow entrepreneurs and developers, I know how you feel. I see the darkness in your soul and I sense the loneliness you have at the end of the night when your friends and family are out at the movies and you’re stuck at home doing the books or writing code. And you’re thinking, ‘they’re getting to see Inception! I should get to see inception! I’m going to download that movie…’

Sadly, Ed got pulled away at that point. He’d hit the 30-second mark. But I could tell that most of the people in the room wanted to hear more and I will be in touch with Ed to find out precisely what this entrepreneurial mentor was driving at.
