My session started early this morning (8:15am, that is) - maybe too early. It was good in general, but I think I could have done better. Regardless of my performance, I think it was a great discussion with lots of interest from the audience.
Mary Hodder asked/argued whether reputation (e.g. eBay feedback score) can be taken out of the context and still be meaningful. (She talked about this before, and we did have a heated discussion a couple of months ago at the reputation roundtable) Keith Teare made a nice statement on how verified reputation helps edgeio and then gave me a chance to talk about how the aggregated reputation can be meaningful. This was the low-point of my Q&A session - I didn't fully understand the question, and ended up talking about something else...
I can only hope that the message still went through, and wish to be able to meet many interesting people in the remainder of the conference.
I just came back from a wonderful dinner banquet. I sat next to Michelle Law (Greylock Partners), Isaac Kato (General Catalyst Partners) and the one and only Hermann Hauser (Amadeus Capital Partners). I, of course, had a chance to talk about my business, but also we shared stories on numerous topics ranging from new cultural phenomenon to the birth tale of New Zealand:)
