Los Angeles' hot tech conference, Twiistup, mixed it up this year and changed from a one evening networking / who's who of LA tech to a two day panel format. After the first day I can say this is by far a better direction for Twiistup.

One of my favorite speakers was Brian Solis and his presentation "Getting Your Startup Noticed". Brian talked about the importance of marketing and PR (good marketing and PR that is) and the fact that there is life outside of getting a release published on Techmeme, Tech Crunch or Mashable. He also talked about the importance of making sure you have a good solid product before jumping into full blown marketing mode.

A family emergency has disrupted our schedule a bit, but now we're back to normal (and thankfully everything turned out well). So this week, you're getting this post a bit early. Let's dive right in to it....
