TechCrunch.com party at Pangea rocks Austin tech scene

0

TechCrunch rocked the high style Pangea Lounge in Austin’s trendy 4th Street District on Sept 25, 2008 with a roomful of startups, entrepreneurs and VCs. Kimberlie Dykeman did about 20 interviews, and these are a few of the first to be released. More will be released later.

Interviewees included Troy from PeoplePad.com, Brad from DadLabs.com, Dewey from Mingll.com, Mark Spilotro with iknoware.com, Erick Schonfeld and Heather Harde with TechCrunch.com, Randy Cohen with ticketcity.com, Joshua Baer with otherinbox.com, Jay Hallberg with SpiceWorks.com, Samantha Nebrick with YellowPages.com, Dee Dee Dial with BazaarVoice.com and more.

The video is also appearing at these video sites: MySpace, Metacafe, Blip.tv, Stupid Videos and Sclipo. On itunes, subscribe to austinblogger to get the video on your Apple TV, ipod, or Itunes player.

Here’s the DadLabs video from the TechCrunch party:

let the good comments roll with diskus!

I have to admit to being a comment poor blog.  And I’m remiss in not putting akismet and disqus on here sooner.  Tonight akisment gave 32,000 plus spam comments a beating.  They’re gone.  Room now for your comments and disqus should make things a lot more interesting.

I got turned on to the disqus comment system by Shey Smith on his most excellent blog, http://sheysmith.com and got really motivated to install it when I heard Leo Laporte and Amber Macarthur rolling in the aisles over this on their net@nite podcast broadcast live today.  It helped push me more that Dave Winer, grandaddy of rss and blogs, is using this as well.

Disqus brings video comments, along with a community of commenters, better comment formatting, and much more.  And the wordpress plugin install was as easy as could be.

Shey Smiths blog really rocks

I stumbled across this blog on my friendfeed account a few days ago and it’s been a daily read ever since.

It’s http://sheysmith.com

Today he’s talking about tomorrow’s twit out and friendfeed and social networking.  He’s doing an amazing job on this blog and it’s become a daily read.

And he turned me on to disqus!

Disqus was the topic on today’s net@nite with Amber and Leo and at first glance it’s something you don’t need, as Leo observed.  But, on closer examination, it’s a great comment system for blogs that integrates video and ties comments in to social networks.     And best of all, it connects you to a community of blog commentors like Shey Smith.
