Web 2.0 Expo Adventures

I’ve been in San Francisco since Saturday and have been working with the Viddler team on the launch of version 2.0 of the site. It just launched last night at 2 o’clock in the morning. We’re at the Web 2.0 Expo to announce the new stuff on the site, meet with people, and generally have a good time.

While I’m here, I’m also planning to tell a few people about our upcoming product (we got business cards for it, finally, which I’ll show at some undisclosed date here on BrainFuel). I’m going to try to visit a few coffee shops. Taking a lot of photos and video, and enjoying the California weather.

  1. Hey Chris, had no idea you were at Web 2.0 Expo. Cool! There must be a LOT of geeks there…j/k; I’m one too of course.

    The Viddler 2.0 site looks great. You guys have done an excellent job with the UI there.

  2. Mark – Thanks, we designed it in 30 minutes. The idea was that the cards can be re used for any purpose. At the moment, we just write ‘web2expo’ in the tag spot and hand them out to conference goers.

    Josh – Thanks, rght now I’m sitting in a boring keynote, so at this very moment, you are not missing much. Some of the sessions have been interesting, though.

    Mick – Thanks

    Tomas – You should! You can now also set it up so that other people can download your original file (optional). You can also subscribe via RSS to various feeds.

  3. I also didn’t realise you were involved with Viddler Chris. I first saw it on WLTV. I am considering using it for a project coming up. But I have to say.. I preferred the player interface before the new chrome (at the expense of the new features). The website is nice. Good job.

    I wish you the best of luck with it.

  4. Thanks for all your help at the event… I had a blast working and just hanging out with you Chris… oh – and thanks for the bear hug! 🙂

  5. I read this about the funky bilboard: it’s an ask jeeves ad — the billboard is part of a series that is trying to distance the brand “ask” from it’s previously known brand “ask jeeves” and provide greater emphasis on algo technology. another ad in the series reads “the algorithm killed jeeves”.
