Techcrunch Party VII -- the bare essentials
The event was held at the headquarters of venture capital firm August Capital, on Sand Hill Road -- ground zero of Silicon Valley's money world. Most of the evening, engineers, VCs, chief executives and marketing types schmoozed over wine and snacks.
The police showed up at midnight to shut the place down, although we are uncertain why. There are few residents in the area. Perhaps they caught wind of this character below, who had walked around in the nude earlier? (Photo courtesy of Thomas Hawk). Does anyone know if he picked up the $200 bounty for the stunt?
Here are some Flickr photos labeled Techcrunch7.
Updated: Bryan Quinn, of SpyMedia, confirms the streaker photo was purchased by "Silicon Valley Guy" late last night for $200.
This "streaker" also managed to have someone film it as well (for some, this will be disappointingly tame).
We were just talking with a friend who checked out some of the party's coverage after not being able to make it. He observed that something has changed in the valley, with the advent of all this alternative media. It has become a bit like Los Angeles. People are running around with cameras, camcorders, microphones, and there is this buzz factor you pick up by being seen with certain people.
