This weekend I was in Boston participating in Startup Weekend. There were over 150 people participating this weekend. This was my first startup weekend and their were over 70 ideas pitched on friday night. Once the voting was in the pitches were narrowed down to 20 ideas. We formed teams and I ended up on a team with 5 business people, 2 creative people and 3 developers. I worked with 2 Microsoft Evangelist’s Scott Klein and Nathan Totten who were in from Redmond. I noticed that there were a lot more business people than developers at the event. We need to get more developers to participate. A number of the ideas that were pitched were very interesting and could turn into a nice startup. The weekend had students from MIT, Harvard, Tufts and a number of other local colleges and universities participating. If you have not herd about startup weekend you can find information at there are a number of events all over the United States and World.

The people's choices are very important for life. If we choose right people, We'll be happy all time.
