I love it. TechCrunch blogger Michael Arrington announces a competing conference to DEMO (where startups get to do a high-profile launch), from DEMO! He zings DEMO for its pay-to-play model:
The entire conference is paid startup demos. There are way too many to digest - 60 - and it is a well known secret that if you are willing to pay the $15,000+ fee, your startup will really need to suck to be turned down.
