Open Data Conference

March 13, 2007

Back into the Open Data Session.

Just missed DayLife.

Chris Fralic from First Round Capital shows Stumblevideo. It’s cool. The Dick Cheney video is hilarious. Stumbleupon is a great example of open data — wisdom of the crowds. This is probably a dumb question, but how is Stumbleupon really different (in a meaningful way) from Digg?

Feedburner Dick Costolo is next. Dick shares with us that lots and lots of his publishers open up their usage data.

Lunch. Finally. Great chat with Dick Costolo, Chris Fralic and Jeff Jarvis, over roast beef and chips. Met Reuters CEO Tom Glocer, who is going to help me evaluate a deal I am now looking at.

Back to the session. Scott Rafer, CEO of MyBlogLog, is up there.

Need to cut out early to go to meeting over at NBC.

My net-net: data, and the ability to capture, analyze, distill and act upon it, is going to be a very important chapter of the Internet. Still a little ways out, but approaching, and probably pretty quickly.

Really good event. There actually was substance. Only time in recent history that I can recall actually staying in the session most of the time.

Thanks  Seth!
