We had a very successful TechCrunch party in London last Monday. Next up – a party in Seattle co-produced with Redfin. And its just a few days away, next Wednesday, May 31, 2006. The party is being held at ConWorks, which is an artsy warehouse-style space on the south shore of Lake Union that will hold up to 800 people (and it sure looks like a fun place to have a party).

This event is free and open to everyone.

Event Information:

Date: Wednesday, May 31, 2006
Location: Conworks, 500 Boren Ave N, Seattle, WA 98109 (Map) (View)
Time: 6:30 – 11:00 pm
RSVP: Please add your name to the wiki

The sponsors for the event are Redfin, Farecast and Triphub. Thanks to them this party is completely free for everyone. We had a number of other sponsor requests, but we are completely covered on costs – thank you to everyone who offered. John Cook from the Seattle PI and John Moe at NPR have also helped extensively with the planning. Thank you to all.

    I use Comcast in HMB for cable and internet (and VOIP for phone), and my friendship with Frank Eliason @comcastcares has made it a joy to deal with. But I do want some kind of faster service than Comcast gives, so I am waiting for FIOS.

    I really like the example of how the NewsGang video makes it to the iPhone. Small connections add up to a big effect. The visual metaphor that came to mind was lightning occurring between clouds before finally striking the ground. Appropriately enough, it can strike in either direction (cloud-to-ground or vice versa).

    This post also reminded me how much I enjoyed the “TV is dead” Gillmor Gang with Doc Searls. I’ve been ranting about the wasted “live” TV bandwidth (mainly used to loop pre-recorded shows) ever since.

    As you’ve previously mentioned, AT&T is also offering digital TV and phone service through uVerse. It’s nice to see these providers competing for our business for once.
