Last night's Ideas On Tap event had a huge turnout, packing the Yaletown Brew Pub under ambience of the Canucks vs Red Wings (4-3 Canucks in overtime). The lively crowd only had to pay attention for ten minutes as five presenters gave 60 second pitches. By vote of applause and cheering, the winning pitch was PhoneGap, presented by Andre Charland of Nitobi.
The other four pitches were:
- Deborah Collins pitching Soya Marketing and the changing nature of marketing towards Google and web presences.
- Linda Bustos (Elastic Path) pitching Twitter as a tool for networking, chatting, and recruiting.
- Mike Agerbo pitching GetConnected, his TV show, radio show, and magazine on tech trends and gadgets. He encouraged folks to pitch their companies or products to them for the shows or magazine.
- Rebecca Bollwitt, pitching her company sixty4media and their services for blogging, podcasting, screencasting, and WordPress theming.
