TechCrunch Disrupt San Francisco 2012 – initial thoughts on day one

11 September, 2012 (01:54) | branding, social media, technology | By: Shannon Clark

I have just returned from the first day of a packed day at TechCrunch Disrupt San Francisco and while I am exhausted I am also exhilarated at the quality and breadth of the startups onstage and offstage at this year’s show. I have attended nearly every TechCrunch Disrupt conference – almost every one since the first in San Francisco and many though not all of the conferences in New York City. This year’s conference is by far the biggest yet and if Day 1 is any sign it is also one of the highest quality shows done by TechCrunch yet – I saw many companies on stage today which I think will prove to be successful businesses whether or not they win the Disrupt Cup.

This is just a quick and short post highlighting of few of my observations from the day via my Tweets, I will add photos and more detailed thoughts in upcoming days as well as more details about the project I worked on this past weekend at the TechCrunch Disrupt Hackathon – that project, Track Deadlines is one that I plan on continuing to work on after TechCrunch Disrupt concludes. In fact you can go and sign up to be part of my eventual beta when it is fully ready. And go read my earlier blog post (on my personal blog) about what I was planning to work on at the Hackathon.
