Digital Capital Week

I’m really excited for Washington DC’s very first Digital Capital Week (DC Week), which kicks off on Friday.  DC Week is “a 10 day festival in Washington DC focused on technology, innovation and all things digital in our nation’s capital.”  It’s being co-produced by Frank & Jen at Shiny Heart Ventures and Peter & the gang at iStrategyLabs.

I remember when the current generation of the DC tech community was just 20 people sitting around a conference table drinking beer.   It’s crazy to think that we now have a world-class 10 day festival.   It’s a community that I’m so proud to be a part of.

I’m doing my best to be at as many of the parties as possible but you’ll also be able find me speaking on some panels. There’s two. One is Tuesday, June 15th, at 6:00 PM at 1410Q (1410 Q St NW ) on “Hacking Social Networks in Real Life.” The second is Friday, June 18, at 1:00 PM at the UMC Conference Facility (900 Massachusetts Avenue, NW) on “When Failure and Criticism Are Public.

If you’re going to be there, come find me and say hello.

Buy a Phone. Join a Revolution.

Apple really has some master marketers.  Have you seen their iPhone 4 video?  You watch it and you feel like by buying the new iPhone that you’re joining some type of revolution that’s going to change the world.  It really tugs at the heart strings.

One of the big projects that I’ve been working on here at Clearspring is this open sharing protocol, OExchange.   It goes a long way to get people who share stuff (like us) and places where you want to share (social networks) talking the same language.   This will make it easier for you to share anywhere you want to share online.

Oh and we did an overview video and guess who did the voiceover.  Check it out…
