DEMO 08 (Part II)

We're back from the DEMO 08 conference that was held in Palm Desert, CA, 28-30 January. It was great! Truly a unique mix of demonstrators, media, VCs and industry experts coming together in an event that is informal and relaxed, yet incredibly professionally produced by Chris Shipley and her team. Anyone looking to launch anything in tech or media, this is the event!

We had a great time and judging by the attention and media coverage so far, Silobreaker's message of providing "insight as a service" struck a chord with many of the attendees. Thanks to all who came by our booth and saw the presentation. You can find Silobreaker's presentation in DEMO's video center.

And here's some feedback that's come in so far:

"The Coolest Thing I Saw At DEMO" - InformationWeek, 31 Jan 2008

"Every year at Demo there's one presenter that captures my imagination and actually seems to be providing something that I will find useful. This year, while Skyfire showed off the beta of an intriguing new mobile browser and BitGravity displayed its power new network platform for high-definition video, the choice was easy: Silobreaker."
