Startup Showcase

Today in the late afternoon/early evening, Tim O'Reilly and I are going to host a startup showcase at the Web 2.0 Expo in NYC at the Sheraton in midtown.

Here's how it will work. Tim and I will go on stage at 4:50 to talk about how we are going to evaluate companies for 10 minutes. Then everyone in attendance will be able to walk around to all the booths for an hour meeting the companies. Then from 6:15 to 7pm Tim and I will make our picks (one each) and the crowd will make their pick. Each selected company will be given 10-15 minutes to do a pitch/discussion with Tim and me.

Here are the companies that will be participating. I am really looking forward to this event. Should be great.
