Tiny Deathstars of Foulness

The vibrant technology community here in Minneapolis has at least one more event left in the waning days of 2012. And to wrap the year, 7 minute demos with no presentations at MinneDemo, a bar camp-esque event focused around demoing new tech. I love the cookouts these guys have, but it’ll probably be too cold and snowing to have dozens of people milling around a keg, so let’s go indoors and watch people demo tech that hopefully works. A little of what they have in store for us (to quote their site):
As always, MinneDemo features home-grown tech without the BS. The rules are simple: 7 minutes, real working technology, and NO PowerPoint! Skill Sketch is meant to bring out the artist in everyone by presenting the user with a series of random lines that they then try to turn into art. FanLand: Talk sports, earn points, list tickets, get sports deals and news Etail provides a platform which helps mid-high volume online merchants integrate their sales channels (Amazon/EBay/Sears/Websites/more) with their supply chain and inventory. QuickTracPlus is a cloud based software that enables you to dispatch, manage and track work orders. DoDrinks is an app that enables thousands of drinks to be digitally sent (and actually consumed), every day. It’s as easy as sending a text, Facebook message, or email. But much tastier. So much tastier. EnableDoc is a cloud-based care management solution that combines electronic health records, billing, and patient care management for physician groups, promoting collaborative care, while streamlining work flow for physicians and staff. Rochester Commons is a community focused website that allows the citizens of Rochester to learn more about their community and actively participate in helping Rochester grow and prosper. My Form is a marketing tool for Facebook Page administrators to ease collecting information from Facebook fans.
The events these guys throw are very well orchestrated and professional (don’t get me wrong, feel free to wear that Hawaiian – but pro quality is what I mean). Anywho – to sign up, see the eventbrite page here.
