Perhaps that statement isn’t quite so true, but with all the activities during TechCrunch50, you wouldn’t really be able to tell the difference.
I have to admit I really need to start bringing my Canon Powershot (and beg for a Nikon SDR for Christmas – I’ve been really goood this year!). The one above is taken via my iPhone early on during the Seesmic Anniversary Party (Happy Anniversary!!!) before it got too dark and crowded.
9/8 TC50 Day 1: completely oblivious that it actually started today. Opted out of going to MySpace party, which I heard was a blast.
9/9 TC50 Day 2: drinks @ the Chi.mp/Mars Bar hang out by the conference center. Totally chill and a nice way to ease into the craze. Didn’t make it to Temple cuz, let’s admit it, I’m a granma and it’s a school night.

I also picked up a nice ‘swag bag’ filled with Skyy vodka, Gatorade, dissolvable Tums (eww?), breakfast bars, t-shirts and a “I’ve completed the hangover course @ TCRehab” certificate. My favorites are the RP and Powerset t-shirts. Gotta love that soft cottoned American Apparel.

Jump to evening. Seesmic party at 330Ritch. (Seriously, I need to start wearing make-up. So many random guys have flirted with me over the last few days. Apparently, 5 mins of powder makes me a whole new person.) Skip over to the bar, grab some salmon tartar and a dirty Grey Goose martini. The food, except patte (ick), was delicious as was the company.
9/11Post TC50: McGriddles.
All in all, a fun few days. Met some cool dudes et dudettes. Learned that I need to 1) stop ducking away from cameras and 2) bring one.
