Portland Web Innovators – Demolicious!: An Event Review

Portland Web Innovators – Demolicious!

When: Wednesday, July 2, 2008, 7:00 – 9:00 pm, although I started the pre-event an hour before at It’s a Beautiful Pizza, and ended the it with post-event drinks at The Side Door for another two hours.

Where: CubeSpace.

What It’s About: Demolicious is a chance for 5 local developers to showcase their latest projects (top secret or otherwise) over the course of 10 minutes.

Amber Case captured the event in a writeup so thorough, I may as well stop my review now and let you read hers.

Here’s what she has to say about it:

[Demolicious] basically means that a bunch of innovative people in the room, watching, sharing, and presenting prodigious pre-beta/beta/live web projects. Good stuff. Gone is the era of stale doughnuts and flatlined agendas. This stuff is groundbreaking, interactive and sweetopian.

Technicality: ☝ ☝ ☝ ☝
Translation: If you have more than two email addresses, join more than two social networks or web services, and rely on your RSS reader for delivering news, Demolicious is for you. The services that were demoed were interesting, but the presenters did spent time to talk about the underbellies.

Interestingness: ☝ ☝ ☝ ☝
Translation: If MetroSeeq’s Wheel of Meals doesn’t simplify your lunch decision making process, I don’t know what else will.

What I Learned From The Event In Six Words:
So much technologies, so little time.
