I’m in San Francisco for a couple days this week and the activity level is sweet here right now. As one person described it to me today, “San Fran’s tech space is so hot right now, it’s rare to hear someone talking about the dot-com burst anymore these days.”
One company that’s making some noise here is a cool avatar play called Meez. You can check them out at www.meez.com. A user basically creates a 3D avatar and then can combine that effort with export features that allow them to integrate it with MySpace, blog sites, email programs, etc. My initial effort at creating one of these guys is below. Meez announced a deal today with high-flying Photobucket and has also done a great job thus far at affiliating their efforts with entertainment industry and attire brands including several Univeral Music artists. Definitely a company worth watching in the coming months.
