Vinod Khosla Is Coming To Demo Mobile. Are You?

Vinod headshotDEMO Mobile is really coming together. I am very happy to announce Vinod Khosla will be speaking, along with an awesome roster of judges. From a post I just put up on the DEMO Blog:

It is difficult to find true contrarians these days in Silicon Valley. But Vinod Khosla is one of those rare VCs willing to back seemingly crazy ideas that turn out to change the world before it is clear how important those businesses will be. These days he is knee-deep in mobile (sitting on the boards of Square and Jawbone, and an investor in early-stage mobile startups such as,, and Instacart). I am thrilled to announce Khosla will join us as a keynote speaker at DEMO Mobile in San Francisco on April 17. (Register to attend here. Today is the last day to buy tickets at the early-bird rate).

I am equally excited about the other speakers and judges we are lining up for DEMO Mobile. They include current Kleiner Perkins partner Chi-Hua Chien, SoftTech VC Jeff Clavier, RunKeeper founder Jason Jacobs, Pixel Qi founder Mary Lou Jepsen, Cowboy Ventures VC Aileen Lee, Google Ventures general partner and Android co-founder Rich Miner, and Firespotter Labs founder Craig Walker (whose last previous companies GrandCentral and Dialpad became Google Voice and Yahoo Voice, respectively).

  1. If you are not on foodstamps and you vote for Obama, you are sneiwrcg yourself.Me, I’m thinking about quitting my $100k/yr job and going on food stamps. It’s just easier when you are entitled. There is no incentive to work or own a business any more.

    • Thanks all for the comments. I guess when I wrote the list I felt that 2) Manufacturing 3) Site and oficfe efficiency 4) Influencing suppliers and the supply chain Would cover water use, and that the last point covered employees. However this was probably not specific enough.The point about radical innovation I would put under design and manufacturing, but again, your comment is about broader issues perhaps, thanks to all for pointing these out.Toby

  2. Andy Beal gave a perfect exmlape for what Techcrunch felt about it “Hey, look at us!” According to Google, the shift of ads to left is a way to display more options for what people are trying to find on the internet. Certainly Google wants to tell us that the ads are always relevant for what we are searching?
