Great notes on yesterday’s Virtual Goods Summit

I just uploaded a bunch of great notes from yesterday’s Virtual Goods Summit to my link blog.

The summit was remarkable because of Susan Wu’s leadership — she’s a VC at Charles River Ventures. Along with co-host, Charles Hudson of Google, they put together a conference that was unexpectedly good — a few people in the hallways had just come from the Supernova conference and said this one was noticeably better than Supernova. Susan wrote an excellent editorial on TechCrunch the other day which set the tone for the conference. I’m just happy that there’s another business model to talk about with CEOs. I’m so tired of hearing “advertising” as the answer to how we’ll all make money on the Internet.

I’m very honored that I got to moderate an excellent panel yesterday. Here’s Virtual World’s notes on the panel I moderated. It’s amazing how complete the notes are. Joey Seiler, the guy who typed them, must really be fast.

  1. Hmmmmmmmm… how about selling virtual cans of pet food on-line? That totally gets around the old problem Web 1.0 shipping problems for selling real cans of pet food on-line. Totally disruptive.

    OK, maybe not; but seriously, this is a great topic… I think the current $1.5B global market for virtual objects is just the tip of the iceberg. For anyone interested, more on this on my blog @
