Techcrunch40 Conference

Posted by



When Michael Arrington first announced the TechCrunch20 conference (now Techcrunch40) I thought it was pretty cool and I shot him a email saying if they had some extra press passes (ok I am a cheap ass) to shoot one my way ;). Well I am very excited to say I will be covering the event next Monday and Tuesday. This is quite an amazing conference and I am super stoked to go and steal there ideas listen to all the new startups pitch there nuts off to a room full of people hoping one of them will back there idea ;). I see on the TC site that Arrington is now saying its close to being a sell out. (I think I love Arrington so much cause his last name is so close to a-ringtone).

I will only be there from 8am Monday until 8am Weds. I am only going to cover this event and I am already booked solid for meetings. Plus I actually want to stay sober for this one.

Can’t wait!

I am also even happier to announce that in my absence both Neil Patel and Rebecca Kelley (diva of the moz) will be doing some posts on shoemoney.com in my absence.

I have encouraged them to go nuts so lets see what they come up with. Rebecca has also volunteered to handle this weeks q&a so ill make a post asking for questions tomorrow sometime.

    You actually have tripped my stalker alert with all your emails and messages.

    I have actually gotten seriously over 50 different emails from people who registered every shoemoney@ and shoemoney. and /shoemoney hahaha I guess I had that coming!

    Actually Jeremy this is incorrect. Not one company has paid to present, that’s the pitch/ appeal of the conference. 39 of the 40 were selected from roughly 800 submissions. The last spot is via public vote from the demo floor attendees…which means they indirectly pay to present, but not directly. The costs are covered by sponsorships and ticket sales.

    actually they dont have to pay. From the website “Forty of the hottest new startups …. will announce and demo their products ….. And they don’t pay a cent to do this”

    Been reading your blog for awhile and never feel like making any comment, but I have to comment on this one.

    “I think I love Arrington so much cause his last name is so close to a-ringtone”

    I didn’t go out and register every Shoemoney thing out there what I did was offer you something that you had already expressed interest in. Now if I went and registered somerandompage.com/shoemoney and tried to pawn it off on you I would understand, but in your own words “What would I pay for myspace.com/shoemoney ? I offered the person who owned it $1,000 but she has not got back to me.” I was just wondering if you were blowing smoke or you were seriously prepared to make that offer. You said something I was just wondering if you were going to back it up that’s all. If I said I was going to pay 1million dollars for something and someone approached me with it I would pay because 1. I know what I want and 2. I don’t make claims that I wont backup. Now here is one for you. I’ll give you $10,000 for Shoemoney.com .

    BTW: The site in question is http://www.myspace.com/Shoemoney if you check out http://www.charleshighsmith.com You’ll see a Myspace screenshot of Mr. Shoemoney himself asking to purchase the site. Any “idiot” here that has anything else to say about please refer to the shoe that is conveniently placed in your mouth. I went and paid the $1000. Now I’m not asking for $1000, and given my terminal illness probably wont be around in a few months anyway so I don’t need to take the money with me. I’m not telling you to pay $1000 for it. Make an offer. I’ll donate the money to charity.

    peace.

    I’ve struggled with what exactly to do on my Twitter account. One may contemplate it a hybrid… I put up so much about internet design, marketing and small business. Most likely will add more private issues in the future.
