Company: zvents
Launched: next week
Location: Menlo Park, CA

I had a chance to see a demo of the upcoming Zvents service this evening at the NetService Ventures Group office on Sand Hill Road in Menlo Park.

Mark this one down as an ajax showcase. Zvents is a complete events ecosystem, with search, event creation, calendaring, sharing and blogging/webmaster tools (lots of ajax here) for promotion of events and calendars.

It looks similar in many respects to EVDB (now eventful), although the search functionality is clearly a generation further along and it certainly is a very good looking site.

zvents opens up next week and will be launching at the Web 2.0 Conference.

Peter Caputa wrote a detailed analysis of this space, including eventful and zvents, on PC4Media.

    Poetic as always. I just honestly don’t see Microsoft having any influence right now. That is, unless Silverlight takes off. Even then, they are just a pawn like Adobe. Flash is ubiquitous but in many cases now it is just a proxy for JavaScript to get at the hardware. (And, of course, Adobe Reader is a joke.) The whole Mesh strategy is just Microsoft playing catch-up to where everyone else is with feeds and REST APIs. The real future power is whoever can unlock the full power of XMPP, and that would probably be Google or perhaps Facebook.
