Building your productive workspace: Yes you can!

I’ve managed to twist the arm of the organisers of the upcoming Being Digital conference, and those nice people at Sun Microsystems Startup Essentials who are sponsors, to add another delegate place for me to give away. So I’m happy to announce that I’ve selected Phreadz to demo at the event, while a delegate place each will go to Qajack and Ki-Work, who both took the trouble to do an innovative video pitch. Apologies to those who didn’t make it, but there’s always a next time, plus TCUK readers can still get a hefty discount on a delegate place with this link and there is a discount offer of a £500 price to demo companies if you quote “TCUKDEMO” when you apply. If I manage to squeeze any more freebies out of the organisers, you’ll be the first to know.

Here are some of the more interesting video pitches on the original call for entries blogs post, starting with our winners (see after the jump).

Demoing: Phreadz

Delegate place:

    Mike, I have to register my complaint, I really am not happy over this: did the dog NOT win anything at all? Maybe you sent him a bone in the post or something, or maybe he got some scooby snacks? Nothing?? Nothing at all? :(

  • Omar

    and… well done to the winners! :)

    This is great stuff, thanks for having the blog and putting details like this video on it. Those of us with no writing or video skills really appreciate it. Believe me. I love that you’re providing all of these stimulating and informative videos.
    Thanks for the heads up on this program. I never heard of it before but from
    your post it seems like I should pick it up sometime soon.
    I am terribly jealous. Hope this is going to be an annual event.
