This was given when I could not use my computer to take notes. The slide presentation was excellent and Charlene gave a great keynote.

Nice shot by Scott Beale of a MacBook Air etched with Social Graph pattern, one of the prizes for AppNite (writeup by RWW) @ Graphing Social Patterns West. Nick Gonzalez lovingly & carefully brought it all the way to San Diego from Palo Alto.
The MacBook Air was provided by AppNite sponsor SocialMedia.com; other AppNite prizes provided by Google OpenSocial team & Facebook Platform team. Charles River Ventures was also an AppNite sponsor, and Jim Scheinman & Nick helped emcee.
The AppNite winners were:
* ReadingSocial, by HungryMachine
* Chirpscreen, by Chirp
Special thanks to Andy Stack, Oortle/PhotoPhlow, for helping setup SMS voting via Mozes (and also to Facebook, who graciously sponsored the open bar, so as to loosen up the voting ;)
This is a nice picture of the Mac that was first prize. I voted for Chirpscreen, which was cool but since there were a lot of developers there, it was not surprising that the developer Analytics won. Voting by SMS was nice and something to think about. Using cell phones to collect information in realtime during a presentation would be very interesting.
