Speaking at Web 2.0 Expo San Francisco: Launch Pad

On Thursday, April 24 I'll have the privilege of demonstrating Drupal at the Web 2.0 Expo Launch Pad event in San Francisco. Acquia and five other companies will have five minutes each to demo their product or service in front of a large audience and a panel of VC's. It's a huge honor for Acquia to be chosen among the 150 companies that submitted applications and a wonderful opportunity to show off Drupal in front of thousands of its potentially likely users.

In February, I gave a two-hour talk about Drupal at the Boston PHP User's Group. In the past I've spent as long as five full days teaching Drupal developer seminars. In San Francisco, I'll have three minutes—Acquia's VP of Marketing Jeff Whatcott seems to insist on spending at least some of our time talking about our company :-). How would you demonstrate Drupal's depth and flexibility in three minutes? What would you show?

I hope you are able to join us in San Francisco to find out our answer to this challenge. Launch Pad starts at 1:30pm PDT and we are first up, so do not be late! Note that you can attend the session for free using an Expo Only pass—use the discount code websf08opw when you register.

For those who can't make it, we'll post video online as soon as we can afterwards.
