2007 Crunchies Award Ceremony

Last Friday was the 2007 Crunchies award ceremony at the Herbst Theatre in San Francisco. This was my first time attending the award ceremony, and I had a great time. The Crunchies is an annual competition and award ceremony to recognize and celebrate the most compelling startups, internet and technology innovations of the year. It was hosted by TechCrunch, GigaOm, Read/WriteWeb, and VentureBeat.

Some of the award categories were ‘Best new gadget’, ‘Best business model’, ‘Most likely to succeed’ and ‘Best start-up founder’. Congrats to all the winners.

One of my highlights of the night was seeing the Richter Scales perform ‘Here Comes Another Bubble‘. I didn’t shoot the below video, but I found it funny that you can see me running around in the beginning trying to get better photo angles.

My other highlight was when the ‘Best new gadget’ was announced. The winner was the Apple iphone, but nobody from Apple showed up to receive the award. So who filled their spot? The fake Steve Jobs of course with hilarious commentary.

My pictures of the event can be found on flickr here, all tagged with “2007crunchies“.

Update: Sarah Meyers posted links to the video clips from the ceremony, and has a good post on the after party.
