The winner of TechCrunch 40 is: Mint.com.
Here’s the CEO, Aaron Patzer. He just won $50,000. His site is being hit so hard it’s down. He gave us a demo yesterday morning. We’ll try to get that up tomorrow.
What’s interesting is that two days ago I asked who would win and within minutes one commenter here said he thought Mint would. More proof that my readers know more than I do?
Here’s the TechCrunch coverage of the contest. Mint is also at the top of TechMeme right now.
On October 1 Stanford University is rolling out the red carpet for a Photowalk which ends up at a talk by National Geographic photographers.
This week Rick Smolan (that’s him in the photo) is doing another one of his famous photo projects that you can participate in. He’s the photographer who did the “Day in the Life” series of books, among others. This time he’s working on a new book that focuses on what home means to Americans.
Anyway, really hope you can come along on the Photowalking at Stanford. You’re invited. Just sign up on Upcoming.org. You don’t need an expensive camera, either. It’s open to everyone.
