Energizing Mashable in San Francisco
By marina on Jul 28, 2008
This was by far the craziest Mashable event I’ve attended so far (of course NY may be even bigger and better). Not only with the unique SF atmosphere of Mighty night club that was overfilled with young guys and gals of Social Networking and Social Media startups, but just the entire event that was energizing, accelerating, and to some extend overwhelming. The new generation of the Bay Area LAMP developers were sizzling with hot ideas. Our discussions covered different ways to scale up and tips on how utilize OpenSolaris features such as ZFS and DTrace. Event sponsors were giving away drink tickets among other giveaways, so you can imagine how busy my table was the entire night. I had an OpenSolaris demo running and people were very interested in Sun Startup Essentials program, specifically the hosting offerings we have with Joyent and other partners. Everyone was Twittering the entire time, with messages displayed live by the EventVue site that was projected on a large screen for everyone to enjoy.
