Mmm... (Tech)Crunchy.


Whew! It's been a busy week as I've been preparing with new client, 360desktop, for next week's third annual TechCrunch50 event in San Francisco. If you're not familiar, TechCrunch50 is a major global competition conference for start-ups where they have the opportunity to pitch themselves to nearly 2,000 attendees, including corporate buyers, VCs and angels and some very prestigious members of the press.

Ryan was lucky enough to attend the event last year with client 3Tera and this year it's my turn!

360desktop is a consumer media platform that brings the Web and the desktop together as a 360° Web-enabled desktop. The free Windows download literally transforms a user's desktop into a 360° workspace, giving them an almost unlimited amount of desktop space. The program has some incredible new features and we can't think of a better opportunity than TechCrunch50 to start spreading the news!

While there, I'm also hoping to meet up with the crew at BLASToutdoors, our sister office in San Francisco. There are some new faces there I need to meet, and I can't wait!

If you're a start-up and are looking for some great media exposure like this, be sure to get a hold of us!
