Plugg 2009: Videos, Pictures And Presentations

As TechCrunch UK & Europe editor Mike Butcher already wrote, the Plugg 2009 conference is a wrap. As the organizer, I won’t say too much about the quality of the event other than that we’ve received a lot of positive feedback about the presenting keynote speakers and startups and that we were thrilled with the good vibe considering the economic turmoil we’re in. If you weren’t there to attend, don’t let that stop you to enjoy the content.

If you would like to watch the videos that were recorded at the event, you can check our Vimeo channel or use the Embedr playlist widget below to browse most of them (we’re still uploading some). I’m also including some highlights of the conference that I think are worth your time. The official pictures are up on Flickr as well, and below is an embedded slideshow.

We’ve even put all the presentations on a virtual fileserver powered by NomaDesk, so if you’re interested in downloading that material to your computer, you can install their free software suite and it will enable you to synch a folder on your desktop that contains all the slidedecks in the format that it was delivered in. The fileserver also contains the videos for the 10-minute pitches delivered by the 3 finalists: Jinni, Mendeley (the winner) and Myngle (winner of the audience’s choice award).

You need to sign up for an invitation to the fileserver, and if you do this before the end of the month you can also win one of the NomaDesk USB modems that will be distributed to 10 randomly selected winners. For more detailed instructions on how to get to the public fileserver, read our latest blog post.
