Useful site! Greetings!

There are so many useful and interesting informations on this site! Thanks and greetings from Thuringia in Germany!

Wow. Great site! Congratulations and thanks!

Looking forward to this, should be a nice warm up before the Techcrunch party on the 18th.

My prediction on the opening sentences:

Reid: hi, not sure why I'm on this panel, as I've got a huge user base and can probably figure out several ways to monetize it. Why did my PR guy sign me up to this???

Joe: it's wiki, so it's good. wikigood. Like wicked good, get it? Hey, cut it out, Excite@Home wasn't my fault, AT&T screwed us!

Roman: we're like Skype and Gizmoproject, but with a much less memorable name (but babies say it a lot!)

Alex: well, Yahoo could, oh, no.. flickr.. uh, Google.. er.. hmm. picasa. Well, there's always MSN, right?

Guy: Thanks for coming everyone, don't forget to get your own FilmLoop and I'll be autographic my book for all attendees!

great site with good look and information...i like it

Looks like it will be a great event. I hope to make it, though I will have to fight with some serious bay area traffic to get there from Walnut Creek. PS. Love the new blog design Guy...

Those are some interesting people - I think it'll be interesting. Reid Hoffman is pretty well known. Joe Kraus is a very interesting guy too - I recently interviewed him on my blog. He seems to really know what he's talking about.

I'm not too familiar with the other guys, though I have heard of both of the companies.


The Churchhill Club Web sites reads 8/17 not 8/16 or am I confusing this with another event?

- Joe



You're right. I fixed. It's the 17th.
