WebInno19 – September 15 – Give Back, Get Back

Uncategorized Posted Sep 12, 2008 by Kevin Kosh


It’s that time of the year again. Time for the Web Innovators Group to light up Cambridge with local innovation. Same Dark Knight time (doors open 6:30 p.m., presos start at 7:00 p.m.) and same Dark Knight location (Royal Sonesta, Cambridge).

As always there will be a great lineup of main and side dishes. The main dishes (5 minute demos) look to be an interesting group that I’m going to categorize as Give Back/Get Back:

  • Givvy – a complete solution to enable people to plan, research and execute their charitable giving — Give to charity, Get piece of mind
  • Brring – a free ad supported ringback service that allows you to personalize your ringback tone for friends — Give entertainment and gift ideas, Get $$$
  • Pixily – a secure online service that makes all your paper and digital documents available – and fully searchable — from anywhere. Give back to the environment, Get back time, space and $$$

Following these presentations is the always fun “side dish” demonstrator that give a 30-second overview of their product or service to the audience. During the networking portion of the evening, they’re camped out at tables around the periphery of the room.

For a rundown of the side dishes, visit David Beisel’s blog post here. Understanding that it’s not a “breaking news” environment, I still plan to Twitter from the event. If you’re interested, follow me here.

See you there.
