Internet 2012 Bus Tour: Day 0: Startup Weekend Iowa City

I just finished facilitating Startup Weekend: Iowa City. This is the 5th Startup Weekend event I've facilitated, but probably the 14th or so I've been to.

I've mostly been to larger events - New York City, Seattle, Atlanta, DC - that draw 100+ people. But this was a smaller event, about 25 attendees. (This was actually my second "small" event, my first being a few weeks ago in Louisville, Kentucky.).

And I think I like the smaller events better.

On Friday night, I went through the usual facilitator song and dance. We had some great local speakers, we played Rock, Paper, War, and then we kicked off the pitches.

Congrats to my brother Sam, Nick, Michael and the entire FreshPlum team for their article in TechCrunch today about Helium, a new product from FreshPlum that allows anyone to add a shopping cart to their site with an easy, one-line-of-javascript implementation.

In fact, if you'd like to experience just how easy it is, you can buy Sam a beer to see how he's integrated Helium into his personal blog.

PS Sam, you owe me a beer. :)
