If anyone hasn’t gotten enough of technology events, there’s a boat load of events this week focused on the technology industry in the area.
First of all, out in Palm Springs, there’s Demo 2008 — where 77 new startups from all over the country are pitching what they are doing. Tradationally, lots of Silicon Valley “buzz” around those startups comes out of the conference, which has been held down here for several years now.
Second, all over Los Angeles there are a ton of events linked to Los Angeles Technology Week. The kickoff is today at lunch with a keynote by astronaut Sally Ride. Tonight’s Tech Coast Angels Fast Pitch is always very interesting. Other events of particular note is the open screening session by the Pasadena Angels, and a session on the Future of Game Development.
For those folks down in San Diego, the San Diego Venture Group has their 2008 Venture Capital outlook scheduled for Thursday. Finally, out in the Inland Empire the University of La Verne has their third annual Venture Capital conference scheduled for Wednesday — also notably spearheaded by a number of Tech Coast Angels.
