Geek Sessions

Posted on August 1, 2007

Geek SessionsI attended the July Geek Sessions event last night in San Francisco. On the panel, to present their experiences with surviving the hockey stick, were Sandy Jen from Meebo, Nick Heyman from VideoEgg, Rod Gorodetzky from digg and Jonathan Abrams from Socializr (and formerly Friendster).

I’d missed the first event because I was on my European odyssey, which if it was anything like last night’s is a shame. The panelists provided some interesting insight into the problems they faced scaling up websites to cope with an exponentially growing userbase.

In addition to that, the folks from Arcscale gave away a number of skate boards, B-Hive gave away an iPhone, and there was an open bar and hor’deurves served after the presentations.
