Just got to my hotel from the techcrunch crunchie awards. Super cool event.

I had a press pass so after the show I got to spend some time with the winners who I had talked to online or had been on my radio show but I have never met in person before:

Pete Cashmore of mashable.com

Founder of FaceBook Mark Zuckerberg

Matt Mullenweg founder of WordPress

Kevin Rose founder of Digg.com

I just want to thank Michael Arrington of Techcrunch.com again for the pass. I had a great time.

    Lots of big money names… All young men, making it rich. The internet belongs to the young, and that proves it once again. Would love to meet those guys, such an inspiration, a great positive vibe hanging with those guys. Good work Shoe

    Funny…out of all those “big timers” – shoe is the only one who actually figured out how to make money online.

    I liked Mark Zuckerberg’s interview on 60 Minutes. The reporter said something to the effect of “There’s a lot of buzz saying that you”ll be as powerful as the guys who founded Google.” (or something like that)

    She paused and waited for him to respond. He says “Is that a question?” and then laughs. He just seemed very laid back.

    Wow… so you got to meet all those people???
    That’s amazing!
    What was it like to be around all those famous people? Did you feel like you were inspired by them so you could create something as successful as they did?

    Well aren’t they all? Facebook and Digg are online sites/services and Shoe started with Nextpimp which is also a site/service that people used and he monetized. You could argue that the difference is Shoe didn’t reinvent the wheel to make money and these guys (most pictured) created something completely new. It’s the difference between using a site in a new way to make money (Nextpimp), and creating a new technology to change the way we use the web (Facebook, Digg).

    I remember kevin rose from tech tv I am pretty sure. Looks like a lot of big people in one place, almost everything big on the internet someone there invented it.

    I agree. All these people are successful in their own right. Just because they didn’t want to do something to make money initially doesn’t mean it won’t benefit them in the long run.

    That’d definitely be true. However, Kevin Rose adds nothing to that figure. As much traffic as Digg gets… it cant seem to monetize it. I would rather have less hits with more people clicking than their loads of hits with noone clicking.

    Awesome man! I would love to meet up with those big guys out there! Great job Shoe, would be great if you could rope me in in your next visit to such cool places :P

    these guys look like average guys that you wouldn’t expect to be running or founded such well known companies.

    Looks like an awesome night. I have always wondered what the successful people look like. But congratulations to you and all the other guys at the awards. You all thoroughly deserve it. Nice pictures. I see digg.com got an award. All magnificent sites.

    Regards Andrew
