About 300 tekkies gathered at the trendy Gallery Bar for the NY Tech Mixer (a Meetup.com group) to have a good time at the Internet Week "Demos and Drinks" event.
There were live 10-minute demos by the founders of Auldabees.com, MyFitSolution.com, VillageVines.com, IsWearing.com, and SocialWish.com. Interviews with the founders will be posted over the next couple of weeks on http://www.nytechblog..., so stay tuned.
I met contacts including an MLB event coordinator, an Angel/VC funder, and someone I know from LinkedIn but never met in person.
I also enjoyed the art by Aljosa Daumerie including many rock and roll icons.
After I photographed the Keith Richards painting, I asked an attractive woman if she knew who he is?
"Ok" I said, "I'll give you a hint: he's a very famous heroin addict."
"Why are you sitting here and not mingling?"
"I'm waiting for my husband."
