TechCrunch Party Pictures

These are photos from the TechCrunch party at August Capital. If you’d like to zoom or see all ninety-one pictures, click on a frame (only thirty are previewed here).

If I got $1.00 for every time I heard “Web 2.0,” I would not have to work anymore. Low point of the evening: Kris Tate (founder of Zooomr) came up to me and said, “I first heard about you when I was four.”

    My Web 2.0 Part-AY experience

    For some people, Friday night is the night to go out.  Had a long week, rally with the troops, get a few drinks, and get out on the town, hoping to get a little ac-shun at the local brewpub, bridge-and-tunnel club, or after-hours lounge.
    For others, i…

    This filmloop player is incredibly annoying. Download an app to look at pictures? Seriously.

    Hey Guy!
    Do you think you could do an entry/article on why Remi Frazier didn’t “succeed” with his Mantool?
    I’ve seen crazier things happen than what he was hoping for, but I would like to get some perspective from somebody experienced like yourself.

    Its not so bad if the person who came up to you was 15 now.

    Pictures look great but like Arjun says who would download and install an application to view pictures.
    Me, I have just happy with the very fast moving 30 previews.
    Thanks for sharing.

    Agreed. Not a fan of this whole FilmLoop idea.

    Guy, Zooomr with 3 “o”.
    See? I’m too old to even know the hip spelling of stuff! 🙂 Thanks for pointing this out.

    Hi, is there any keynotes video speeches for this event?
    “Web 2.0 will not be recognized for 2 more years. It is missing one key ingredient, which will be ready in mid or late 2007.” If you look around hard enough, you might find a few of these available.

    This “Filmloop” outfit is doomed. The scrolling thingie in the browser is cute, but when I click on a picture, I want to see the PICTURE, not a link to download an app that does the same thing that half a dozen apps I already have can do. Frankly, it comes across as a sneaky kind of spamming.
    If these clowns are venture-funded, then that will be one more example I’ll cite in years to come of VCs wasting money on stupid ideas. I guess the magic VC hypnosis trigger these days is saying “Web 2.0”, right?
    Tell us about the moment you first discovered you were omniscient. I bet it was a powerful experience. 🙂

    TechCrunch August Capital Party

    Like a canary in the coal mine breathing its final breath, some are insisting that the gigantic, buzz-engorged TechCrunch August Capital Party that I hosted this past Friday is a sure harbinger of Bubble 2.0. One the one hand, it…

    Great blog generally but I’m just adding another voice of mild frustration to this Filmloop thing. Not very web 2.0 😛

    And the Beat Goes On: TechCrunch7

    Friday night’s TechCrunch party was everything one expected, and more. More people, more space, more food drink, more demos, more cars, more conversations, more of everything. Added bonus: a streaker. Sort of. After I finally snagged a parking space,

    Great coverage of the party. Good to see people being realxed. The pictures are very motivating to follow the example.
    Thank you for sharing this pictures with me !

    Guy, it’s better that the Zooomr guy heard of you when he was 4, rather than having heard of you only that evening. 🙂

    Disappointed not to see the speedo clad streaker in your photo set that The Tech Chronicles posted

    Are you seriously comparing this FilmLoop toy to PDF? Did you invest in it or something?
