You Decide Who Presents at the Next NY Tech Meetup

October 9, 2008 | Comments Off on You Decide Who Presents at the Next NY Tech Meetup

Allen Stern, from CenterNetworks, wrote an excellent blog post about how the selection process for the NY Tech Meetup doesn’t seem fair.  Well, how about we let the NY Tech Meetup Community decide who gets to demo?

As a quick solution, I have put the companies that have requested to demo below.  NY Tech Meetup Members can vote through the comment section of this blog for the demos they would like to see.  Please identify yourself so that I can confirm you are a member of the NY Tech Meetup.  I’ll update the vote counts as the comments come in.

Update:  Some of you have requested to vote but offline, that works.  Just email me at vin at yipit dot com

If you would like to be included in this blog, email me at vin at yipit dot com and I’ll update the blog post to reflect your demo.

If we get enough participation, can the NY Tech Meetup really ignore us?

The companies requesting to demo are:

SaneBull | 2 Votes
Presenter:  Felix
SaneBull is an AJAX-powered financial platform which provides live stock market quotes, live news, financial widgets and more.  We have recently overhauled our entire website with a new look and dozens of new features. We’d love to showcase these new features to the Tech Meetup audience.

FreshmanFund | 2 Votes
Presenter: Jeff Frese
A registry for college savings that helps parents save for college even during tough economic times such as these.

RTP | 2 Votes
Presenter:  Dario Meyer
RTP (Right Time & Place) is a location based platform for all GPS enabled cell phones that allows users to obtain and share real estate listings, social events/activities and sales/promotion. My idea is unique due to the fact that it offers the user more features than what is out in the market, most LBS programs remind me of a yellow book with a GPS attached to it.

TurnTo | 3 Votes
Presenter:  George Eberstadt
TurnTo enables visitors to e-commerce sites to see what friends have bought there. This makes it easy for shoppers to get advice they can really trust — without ever leaving the site they are shopping on. TurnTo brings together social networks and e-commerce in a new way that’s better for users and better for businesses.  In a word, it’s what Beacon should have been.

HabitatMap | 1 Vote
Presenter:  Michael Heimbinder
HabitatMap, a Brooklyn based environmental health justice non-profit, builds online tools to support grassroots organizing for livable cities and healthy communities. Below, I’ve included links to a few of the collaborative maps we’ve put together with our partners in the last few months. HabitatMap is a wiki so feel free to contribute to an existing marker or add your own.

Sosauce | 2 Votes
Presenter:  Jamie Lin
We’d love to demo Sosauce at the coming (November) meetup. Our demo’s focus will be on Sosauce Mesa, the leading web-based 3D virtual world. Mesa is the only web VW that runs in all browsers and on both Macs and PCs. We’d like to take the opportunity to unveil several awesome new features as well as announce the grand opening of a new virtual tourist destination — Ross Island. For the first time, people will get to explore this mysterious Antarctic island, which is off limits to the general public in real life. A video introduction to Sosauce Mesa can be found here.

Wee Web | 1 Vote
Presenter:  Matt Meeker
Wee Web is a service for new & expecting parents to easily share photos, videos, and quick twitter-style updates about their newborns with close family & friends in a private environment.
