New PodTech "Silicon Valley" studio nearing completion

Dave Winer wanted us to open a studio he could use in San Francisco. That makes a lot of sense because so many conferences come through there. But we noticed a different trend: most of the world’s entrepreneurs actually come south: to Sand Hill Road in Menlo Park.

Why?

Cause that’s where the money is.

So many entrepreneurs come through Palo Alto for that reason and also to visit the mainstream press here (Wall Street Journal has a building right next door to PodTech) that we built a studio here instead.

Today I was showing Doug Kaufmann, CEO of ClearTXT around so you can get a look too.

While we’re talking about ClearTXT, they have a really interesting system to let college staff and students message each other. Very useful during disasters or other things like the Virginia Tech Shootings. That video will be up in a couple of weeks.

Oh, and that’s NOT what we wanted to keep off of TechMeme! :-)

  3. I wanted to comment about the text messaging notification system that is being used for college emergencies. Last month St. John’s University in Queens, NY had to use their system due to a student with a gun and a mask walking around campus. Text messages were sent out.

    I was in charge of the web servers and the emergency site that we put up, which helped the load on the servers cause they were getting hammered. It’s amazing because we had just put the system in place a month earlier and we all believed it would never see the light of day.

    Thank god no one was hurt..
