I'm blogging this in part because of the Yahoo Groups / U of Michigan email snafu mentioned earlier.
In attendance: Lance Carlson, Mohan Kartha, Jose Nazario, Ron Suarez, Jim Schuler, Laura Fisher, Derek Mehraban, Dan Cooney, Jeff Stanislow, Hali Sund, Brian Kerr, and Don Blumenthal. (all links to LinkedIn profiles) and your host Edward Vielmetti.
Topics covered in no particular order of importance: Page Packer pocketmod layout program for Mac, automated social calendar aggregation, Calendar Swamp blog by Scott Mace, the Arbor Update calendar via upcoming.org , iPhone vs. Nintendo DS, the state of Wireless Washtenaw, how much an iPhone would fetch on eBay, iPhone as the second coming of the Newton. There was more, but I was taking notes on one page of a pocketmod so there wasn't that much room, and the table was long enough that there were two or three simultaneous digressions.
We concluded collectively that we wouldn't give up our Moleskines, Nintendo DS's, pedometers, Hipster PDAs, Blackberries, or simple but rugged candybar phones for an iPhone, but Mohan was certain that the Treo he loathes was going to give way to an iPhone. Ooh, shiny!
I talked about plans for a weekly Thursday call through my new employer, Ann Arbor internet search engine marketing firm Pure Visibility to talk about weblogs, tools to manage them and productive approaches for using them commercially - look for more details of that for a 1/18 launch. 2p Eastern, 11a Pacific. Email me if you're interested. Space is limited, order yours today, operators are standing by, but wait there's more etc.
