The good: The next 106 Miles, on Wednesday November 9, will feature Brian Dear of EVDB, Inc., which runs Eventful. The topic is the state of the consumer web startup space. In the past year, Brian's team has built Eventful/EVDB from a concept to a hot angel- and then venture-backed service being tracked by many potential users, partners, and competitors. Get the real scoop on what it takes to get off the ground, even in these supposedly frothy times.
The bad: With hundreds of people now on our invitation list, this session filled up in under an hour. We limit participation to the first 40 people who reply, and we are in awe of the demand for participation here.
The ugly: Blogger comment spam is everywhere. And there's no quick way to remove it all. Except to remove the ability to comment. Which is also ugly. :(
