I spent yesterday evening in the company of fellow Brightonites of the new-media persuasion.
The good people at Silicon Beach organised a day-long event. I missed the afternoon seminars because of band practice. The really interesting stuff was in the evening anyway.
Their experiences could be mostly summed up as:
"We were really lucky a couple of years ago that people threw loads of money at us to do online stuff… I wouldn’t want to try to break into that market now."
The questions boiled down to:
"How did you come up with the company name?"
The Kerb presentation was by far the most entertaining, complete with chicken anecdotes, animation demonstrations and a sneak peak at their soon to be relaunched website.
I also took some pictures.
