You really can’t start mesh without a good pre party. Please join us at the Drake Tuesday (yup- tonight) at 6pm to start the conversation.
We are also opening the voting lines for our six 15MOF finalists. They will be demo’ing in the Village on Wednesday, so you will have an opportunity to check out the technology and meet the people behind the idea.
Here is a bit of each of our finalists’. . .

Lymbix is best known for ToneCheck, the e-mail add-in that checks the tone of your message before you send it. The concept is solid and we know it. (After all, who hasn’t experienced a “say what?” moment after receiving an email message from a boss, colleague or friend that was obviously poorly thought-out.) That said, we’re _so_ much more than an email add-in. We’re often asked: “How do you know that the email tone is ‘off’?” Well my friends: that’s where the magic happens.
Wavo.me is a new service that takes your favorite media sources like Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr or Soundcloud and extracts all the videos, music and pictures that really matter to you. You can then listen, watch, broadcast and discuss directly on Wavo. The best part is with a click of the mouse you decide which song or video to save to your library where they can be accessed from anywhere at anytime. Our easy to use bookmarklet takes this one step further, allowing you to save and pull content from anywhere on the web. Wavo is your intelligent multi-media library that makes finding and saving cool content easier and more addictive than ever.”
