Mashup Camp 6 in Mountain View

I am at the computer science museum in Mountain View at the first part of Mashup Camp where API providers are showing their stuff.   There will be a lot more tomorrow, and then on Wed and Thursday mashup folks will be showing off their stuff.

I get the impression that this is a different crowd from the first camps, where most were already familiar with mashups, though perhaps those folks will be coming Wed and Thursday for the main camp.

Anxious to try Intel Mashmaker, which looks good.

Most of my blogging about this will be at WebGuild

Startup Camp

I’m back at the Computer History Museum in Mountain View at Startup Camp, another great UNconference event from David Berlind and Doug Gold and hosted by several nice sponsor companies.

The focus here is broader than the Mashup Camps which were more relevant to my travel experience and where we need to go with Online Highways, but I’ve enjoyed excellent “open” presentations by Jeff Barr from Amazon and Venture Capitalists Jeff Clavier with Rick Segal who are generously offering some really key insights into the startup funding process.

Matt Mullenweg is here and it was fun to meet the creator of the superb WordPress environment.
