The Silicon Valley Newtech Meetup is still charging forward, drawing a standing room only crowd and also attracting crowds from the all-day Launch Silicon Valley event held earlier at Microsoft’s Mountain View campus.
At 150 people strong, the Silicon Valley Newtech is one of the top monthly tech events south of San Francisco.
This month’s lineup was exciting, showcasing consumer and business applications that offer compelling services that have a solid shot at long term viability.
Here’s a recap of the companies (note: there’s video footage of the presentations below):
veodia.com – Par Gandhi, VP of Marketing
Veodia positions itself as a live TV studio in your browser. It facilitates 24/7 or episodic lifecasts on the Web and through mobile appliances.
Veodia’s high-end video broadcasting service caters to both professional bloggers and business users in search of a simple way of creating and distributing TV-quality video while preserving full control and ownership of their content. For business, it is ideal for livecasting training sessions, HR and executive announcements, product reviews, marketing events, lectures, conferences, speeches, panels, etc.

Ning.com – Jim Squires
Ning, launched in October 2004, is an online service where you can create, customize, and share your own Social Network for free in minutes. They currently host over 66,000 networks and recently introduced the ability for users to build their own Facebook applications around their Ning networks.
attendio.com – Gerardo Capiel , CEO
Attendio is an event discovery service that brings users information via the web, email, online calendars and mobile phones. For example, music lovers can be alerted when their favorite bands are playing locally, and families can see what child-friendly activities are happening on the weekend.
Attendio intelligently matches member’s interests with events, and offers social networking features such as invitations and reviews.
pikeo.com – Vincent Roussilhon
Pikeo is a beta product from France Telecom Research and Development. Users can search photos based on three separate criteria: Who, What, and Where. According to a past review on TechCrunch, if you search for “Paris,” you can find photos categorized by who took them, what they were photographing, and where they are geographically.
Other noteworthy attendees that I caught up with include:
Paul Pattison of PictureCloud
