Tim Bonnemann transplanted the best of the informal tech get-together from Silicon Valley to Europe, and now back again!
- mnemo, a cool interactive web search/explorer
- an ad-hoc demo of Jajah, free member-to-member phone calls
- Gernot Poetsch, talking about “James“, his multimedia aggregator/personal information butler (and why it will never run on Windows, only Mac!)
- Eugene Kim giving the background behind Hyperscope
- Mark “sIFR” Wubben, asking if Plazes could use RFID beacons as Plazes
All together, the talks made a nice portrait of the future of the web and hypertext. I had a flashback to our recent Wiki Wednesday, too, when Jeremy Ruston did his great TiddlyWiki demo — it fits right into the same next generation web presented tonight.
I started notes on SubEthaEdit and Mark Wubben joined in, and I’ve posted the notes to the Web Montag wiki: Web Montag 14.08.2006 Silicon Valley Notes. I apologize if I didn’t get your name right; if you were there, please edit the notes to improve them! :-)
