DEMO is one slick operation. Between each presenter, upbeat music blasts out on an awesome sound system, then Chris Shipley comes on stage and briefly introduces the next company with a clever snippet that succinctly tells you why you should care. Then the presenters come on stage and have precisely 6 minutes to tell their story. Meanwhile, two giant screens project either the presenters or the computer screens on either side of the stage. This is then all broadcast live to the DEMO website so everyone around the world can see what’s happening.
This is a shot of DD Ganguly of dimdim on stage launching his company which will make WeEx history (dimdim allows anyone to hold a web meeting because it’s free, there’s no complicated software to download, and it’s easy).
