Come say hi in California

I’ll be in the San Fran area next week for a blur 2 days.

On October 18th, I’ll be a judge for CloudScale in SunnyVale.   Then on October 19th, I’ll be a judge for G-Startup at the Global Mobile Internet Conference (GMIC) in Silicon Valley.

Seems like I’m doing a ton of judging recently (see most recent post on StartupWeekend EDU).  I like judging, it’s fun and easy.  But one thing I don’t like about it is that I don’t get to spend a lot of time getting to know the teams.  That’s the problem with a pitch

competition, we’re focusing exclusively on the viability of the idea.  But as you know from earlier rants, I think the likelihood of success is tied to team by about 90%.

However, I’m looking forward to both events. They both have great speaker lineups and look to be full of great content.  If you’re at either one, come say hi!
