TechCrunch40: Back for Day 2

Digital Daily’s John Paczkowski is blogging from TechCrunch40 in San Francisco, a two-day conference highlighting what its organizers consider “40 of the hottest new start-ups” from around the globe. Additionally, another hundred or so companies are demoing their products, some of which he’ll feature here.

While John settles in for this morning’s first session about productivity and Web apps, you can read what fellow blogger Eric Savitz of Barron’s Tech Trader Daily has to say about the first round of presentations as well as the hubbub at the conference today, to wit: “There are a zillion–well, not quite a zillion–start-ups all clamoring for attention. As the name of the conference implies, there are 40 coveted spots onstage, plus a room down the hall with 50 wannabes who didn’t quite make it … all starving for attention. Example: Someone just dropped on the table in front of me … a promotional item for a dating-site aggregation service called The item: a cellophane-wrapped condom.”

Just as the atom bomb was the weapon that was supposed to render war obsolete, the Internet seems like capitalism’s ultimate feat of self-destructive genius, an economic doomsday device rendering it impossible for anyone to ever make a profit off anything again. It’s especially hopeless for those whose work is easily digitized and accessed free of charge.
