This is a little late, but I wanted to post it anyways. Mike's 5th TechCrunch party on Friday night was a great time. With at least 400 people in attendance you just knew it was going to be a fun time. However, how many house parties have you gone to that have corporate sponsors, live product demos, podcasting, and a slew of really connected always on people?
The new dyanmics of product launch, company pr, and brand building are exactly what is embodied in Mike's parties. They are the unconference conference, blending a high degree of accessibility to the participants in a peer-to-peer environment with demonstrations of evolving technologies, and finally, an enjoyable social environment. What makes this possible is the easy group forming capabilities that blogs and wikis bring to bear. Make no mistake about it, in spite of it being a house party there is a lot of business going on.
Thanks to Mike and the extended circle of people who pulled this together, it was a great time.
