To someone transplanted from the East Coast and new to Silicon Valley, it’s charged with events. And September seems to be the craziest month, with Microsoft showing new products at BUILD in Anaheim, CA, MEGA Startup Weekend in Mountain View, CA and DEMO Fall 2011 in Santa Clara, at a Hyatt convention center next to CITRIX.
This is my first DEMO event: last time I was about to present at DEMO when I was running my own CloudOLAP startup project. I didn’t happen because I feel that the event is about technologies that change the world radically, and CloudOLAP is a business intelligence “workhorse” type of product. So, it was interesting to see startups that actually made it to DEMO to change the world
