This past Wednesday we were invited to present at Tech Cocktail DC at Slaviya in Adams Morgan, DC. We met some great people and had a lot of fun! Lots of other Bethesda start ups too! We spent some time mingling and growing the Limelight gallery with DC’s finest and several of the 15 limes we brought along.

So PageLime works great when you need to make changes to content, images, or links on your site. But what if you want to add a new link to your primary navigation? In this post we’re going to outline some thoughts about the approaches we’re thinking about for solving this problem.
Last night we presented PageLime at a Social Matchbox event in DC. Social Matchbox self identifies as “speed dating for geeks”. Basically a bunch of startups show up get a projector, a microphone, and 3 minutes to pitch (sell or inform) attendees in the audience. The audience consists of socializers, other startups, job seekers, and theoretical funders. It was a great experience, the organizers actually held people to the clock, so nothing went super long winded. Emil and I we’re the only people who decided to Pass The Mic on stage. He wasn’t sure if we we’re ready or not to pull off a successful mid air pass, so we went with the freestyle classic handoff mic toss. We also saw some really cool companies present:
Vlytics: A political campaign voter research and analysis tool.
Euraeka: A site that combines artificial intelligence, wisdom of the crowds, and a virtual news editor to find and bring you all the news that’s fit to read.
GeniusRocket: GeniusRocket provides high quality custom graphic design, videos, logos, website design and more crowdsourced by thousands of creators around the world.
We also can’t wait (re: we have no business cards) to get everyone’s contact info off their Mingle Sticks. Definitely a good event. It didn’t feel like terrible forced networking, which always comes off cheesey. Thanks to SocialMatchbox, and their sister/brother/father site JobMatchbox. - Tom
