PayPalx Innovate - Its all about the Developers and theres THE BenParr and MarshaCollier

Innovate 2010 rocked thanks to all of you who helped make it happen, showed up and immersed us in Innovation. What an awesome two days! Can't believe its over!!!

Here is a tweet size summary of both days:

Day1 - Oct 26 - 2000 developers came, wowed to hear about Mobile Express Checkout and PayPal's Digital Goods beta with all demos with developers Payvment, Ooyala on stage

You have to Watch the Day1 Montage to see the energy and passion - here

Day2 -Oct 27 - Developers hacked and launched 15 apps overnights, 22 DevChallenge Global Winners showed cool innovations, the winner walked away with a cooler mobile (yeah its real) and the winner was IConcessionstand who won $100K.

I don't remember any other conference that had so much developers on stage and part of the show all day long. Watch the Montage of Day2 and decide for yourself.

I am humbled by all the teamwork I experienced behind the scenes with fellow PayPalians and the innovation and ideas that sparkled the air all two days.

We had fun too, with our parties (too many) . Catch a glimpse of it with the "Live from Innovate" we ustreamed on Day1 with Edwin Aoki, Marsha Collier and THE BenParr with many surprise guests.
