Fuzzwich and Techshop at Demo party

Went to a Demo networking event last week

In 1991, Stewart Alsop changed the technology conference circuit by instituting a new event with new rules: DEMO would be about the products; would require timed, live demonstrations; and would not allow PowerPoint presentations. These rules still stand. Startups communicate the power and value of emerging technologies on stage in a short 360 second.

Two of companies at that event:

Fuzzwich.com who make animation simpler. An example that I created in a few mintues is below.
