For the past two years, Viewstream has provided proprietary networking and display systems for HP and The Kenwood Group events. Our system, developed in-house, allows audience members to send questions via text message or e-mail, which were processed and displayed on the main screen in real time.

Most recently, we were in Las Vegas for the 2008 HP Software Universe Conference. Check out the photos to see our technology in action!

Thanks to everybody who attended — many of our clients, friends and associates pledged money to benefit Cyclone victims — and despite the issues with aid getting through we know the money will go to good use with the Red Cross. Thanks to Gallery Lounge and Burma Youth Association and everybody who helped out. Amazing.

And thanks to the photographer Dave Brown.

The tragic cyclone disaster in Burma last week has devastated that tiny nation. And we want to help! And we are doing it the best way we know how- with good food, good entertainment (including Burmese Ethnic Dancers!), a raffle, happy hour prices and a lot of information and presentations about the crisis.

We will provide attendees with information to donate through phone/email or you can donate through us at the event.

Here’s the skinny:

Viewstream Party


Eight years is a decent amount of time in this business. So last night we celebrated the only way we know how- cocktails, Burmese eats, the best dj in town, and a serious discussion about the advantages of a four-hour work week.

We also launched a couple new Viewstream services, live flash streaming and HD streaming. We are the new school, after all.

Our one hundred or so guests were treated to a presentation by Tim Ferriss, the man behind the bestselling The 4-Hour Workweek: Escape 9-5, Live Anywhere, and Join the New Rich. A real renaissance man, his talk ran the gamut, from time/money relations in professional work to the three currencies of the digital age (time, income, and mobility, in case you were wondering), from the advantages of polarizing people to why the Japanese might think all Americans are cavemen.

The party kept going thanks to music from DJ Damien, who kicked it out all night long. We were going to post some photos, but thought we needed to save some very important people from some very public humiliation. You know who you are!

Thanks to everyone who came out last night, particularly all the new friends we made. Here’s to an amazing 2008.

Also, thanks to our neighbor and gracious host, The Gallery Lounge. Sorry about the mess.
