launchpad at Web 2.0 Expo

Decided to swing into launchpad this morning at the Web 2.0 Expo in NYC.

ap((strata

Managing servers suck, ap((strata data hub is a way to store anything, from any application, from any device. Allows you to create APIs to let apps pull your data, and set triggers to push your data. Runs on Amazon services, adds another layer of abstraction to the cloud.

Earth Aid

Links all of your utilities together, and feeds up all kinds of savings. You get points for energy savings. Instead of going to utilities and trying to get data from them, they work through the users.

Foodspotting

A way to look for a specific dish on the web. Allows users to upload photos of food and where they saw it.

NEIGHBORHOODR

A reader-generated blog where you can quickly post something that's going on in your neighborhood.

SetJam

Simple goal to make online TV as simple as traditional TV. Pretty cool and powerful way to centralize a very fragmented market.

All good presentations, but the SetJam founder was a bit above the rest in enthusiasm and telling a compelling story.
