Volunteering at Techcrunch Disrupt was really a source of inspiration and it gave us a lot of idea to make iWeekend event better! First is the design of beautiful badges! We will keep each person’s badge for our different iWeekend events (monthly meetups..) so that participants who often come back can find their badge again. It always feel good when you join an event and people recognize you!

TC Disrupt was also the occasion to get to know closer the Startup Weekend Beijing team. Andy Mok, founder of Startup Weekend Beijing was also co-organizer of the Hackathon. Many volunteer of Startup Weekend was also volunteer at TC Disrupt: Lilly, Duncan, Eric, Kevin (also iWeekend participant!) to name just a few and it was lot of fun to work with all of them!

But the Hackathon was particularly the occasion for several iWeekenders to get back together and get news from each other. Tyr Chen And Alex Su were there with the Tukeq team (previous Toureet project, accelerated at iWeekend Beijing 2). It was very exciting to meet their intrepid team and see the progress they make within only 6 months! Other iWeekend alumni who were there included Mike, Nick, Mattews, Nicky all form iWeekend Beijing #1. They all continue on their entrepreneur road and got more experience.

Beijing tech community is just starting to build its foundation. We have no doubt that people you meet today at any community events will be the Chinese Zuckenberg and Jobs of tomorrow! If you are not part of the community yet, join us next week Nov 18-19! We are looking forward to meet you and your dream!

  3. hello,

  4. got money,

  5. I also really enjoy the idea of a group blog mostly because I’ve always been a fan of group blogs a la 37signals. It’s a different take on things that I tend to enjoy, getting to see different opinions, group dynamics, etc.,

  6. Is there a way use some sort of third party forum moderation to cut through this problem? Then you could go on in whatever way you are comfortable, your forums could coninue to buzz and anyone that’s up to no good would hit a brick wall (or get a call from their local authorities, as appropriate). It’s just a thought.,

  7. It’s entirely possible that I copied that individual number across incorrectly (and that the index was correct), but when I did the query just then it returned a Technorati Rank of 37, so as you say there would be no change in the rank, but an improvement in your index.,

  8. Kathy, the content you have graciously shared with us every once in a while is both inspiring and entertaining. And a blog is the perfect medium for this. A lot of the content is about your style and creative personality. Thus, I would rule out the community-based ideas. I would probably only read your stuff anyway.,

  9. I always wondered if the Manchurian Candidate

  10. I do think that by working in a team, it will make it easier for you. The passion moves away from you and to the team of writers, the hate will move with it. Being a part of a groupblog would be a good solution.,

  11. I was thinking the same thing about Alexa as there was quite a lot of movement. They might have readjusted their adjustment for “technology skew” – or what ever it was…,

  12. That’s fine for the House and Senate but for president, there is no way any conservative should vote for either Democrat that will be stuffed down our throats next year. The House is the grand prize. If we had someone like Jim Jordan as Speaker and more than the current 3 reliable conservative senators, the president wouldn’t matter.,

  13. Having said all of that, I wonder if Ande’s idea isn’t the best (regardless of what format you choose to go with for the blog). If it was still public with no comments, but you cross-posted entries in a private forum, you could allow people to respond and discuss in a controlled/private environment, but still keep the blog itself public. I’m not sure how much extra work that would be for you, but if it was negligible I would say that’s the best option for running your site the way you have and seem to love, but keeping the riffraff at bay.,

  15. I’m not sure what you have against “The Five”. I mean, four of the five panel members are on the right. The only creep is Bob Beckel. I admit, his creepiness makes the show a bit harder to handle. But Greg Gutfeld makes up for it! I LOVE him!! Beckel will probably have a stroke or a heart attack on the show one day and they can just shove him off the stage and continue on.,

  16. The reality is that the establishment in the Senate HATE CCB, modest as it really is and see the new Boehner plan as an out, since they figure they will get Reid to make a compromise since it is only 22 Billion in cuts.,

  17. In doing this blog and thinking about this stuff, have you ever had any ideas for what kinds of tools (software, that is) that people could use to do things like share creative ideas in groups, create customer community, etc. etc.?,

  20. I hate to see us lose your input but I wonder if simply publishing articles with no comments enabled and having a members-only forum wouldn’t be a good compromise. There’s something about the immediacy of the response form and the lack of accountability available from anonymity (oh, hypocritical me) that seems to encourage people’s awfulness.,

  21. I think greater interaction among groups would result (mix up the tech bloggers and the marketers and the VCs and the usability people and, hell, even the sex bloggers) ;) and really spark some awesome conversations.,

  22. O.K. I give up. What is your beef with Gutfeld? I think he is hilarious! He is not a serious contributor, but is there for laughs. I like him.,

  23. Take me for example. I could support Bachman, Cain, Palin, or Santorum. in no particular order. Others would choose fewer plus Paul.,

  24. Just look at the difference just 20-30 rock solid Tea Party conservatives have made in the House already. They’ve turned “1/3 of the government” on its head and started a war between the establishment party and the Tea Party.,

  30. Stepahani loves getting tossed around the couch and getting the shit fucked out of her.,

  31. Sahara is a bit resistant and must be restrained to the examination table.,
