DEMO 2012 – Part 1

Every once in a while, I like attending a tech conference to get a flavor of what’s coming. Typically, I prefer the US because I find the conferences much better organised and much more at the heart of innovation of new ideas. I had attended Government 2.0 about 18 months ago, and before that it was Web 2.0 over 3 years ago. So, this time around, since I was going to be in New York for my talk at Columbia University, I looked around for tech conferences and sure enough, I found DEMO was there the following week in Santa Clara. And so, I signed up.

Until a few years ago, DEMO was pretty much the only place where startups could launch themselves in front of an inviting audience. Now, such opportunities have proliferated – with TechCruch, Y Combinator and some others offering similar platforms. For me, since it was the only choice, I figured that it would be a good way to get a glimpse into what’s coming in the near future.

New tehcnologies and ideas have always fascinated me. But of late, as I have gotten more deeply immersed into Netcore, some of that scanning and experimenting has taken a back seat. In the tech world, you almost have to reboot yourself every few years. And so, here I was at DEMO!
