At Mobile 2.0 Rudy reminded me that he’s helping to judge the Under the Radar conference again this year. And he encouraged me to come of course, cause I’ve been hiding under a rock for months and that’s unhealthy. He’s correct.
The event takes place November 12th at the Microsoft campus in Mountain View. Here’s the schedule for the day. I see Tim Chang from Norwest is judging again this year as well. I went to the mobile focused event in 2007 and had a great time. Some of Tim’s feedback was fantastic last year, I’m looking forward to seeing his take on the current crop this year.
Some interesting companies in the lineup too. Skout did the social network for us at Mobile 2.0 and it worked out really well. They created a custom network for us. Pull down the network selection box at the top of the Skout page and you’ll see a Mobile 2.0 option. I feel so special! I keep having issues with the Flash based main interface cause I use oddball platforms like Linux on a desktop and the N810. But the mobile interface has been working out great. I was using it from my E71 while wandering around. I’m curious to see how much of their pitch is tilted toward events vs general networking tools.
A bunch of other folks I would like to catch up with too. MoFuse is going to be there, so hopefully I’ll have a chance to meet David face-to-face. We’ve emailed back and forth in a bunch of contexts, but I don’t think we’ve ever been in the same place at the same time. Would be great to meet MG Siegler too. We did a virtual interview around the Mowser/DotMobi hookup, but I’ve never met him in the really real world either. And I’m planning to catch up with Gregory there too to make some plans for future Mobile Monday events out here.
Nice critical mass of folks, and always nice to go to an event I’m not running so that I can spend more time mingling. Things like this are the reason the Bay Area rocks so much.
