Call for Participation from Companies Transforming Our World

SAN FRANCISCO, Aug. 21 /PRNewswire/ -- O'Reilly Media, Inc. and TechWeb, co-producers of the annual Web 2.0 Expo, today announced the first Web 2.0 Expo New York Launch Pad, taking place during Web 2.0 Expo New York at the Javits Convention Center November 16-19, 2009. Launch Pad is a program designed to spotlight cutting edge and innovative new companies to the Web 2.0 market. This year, Launch Pad focuses on companies that are transforming the world in which we live. A call for Launch Pad submissions is now open and will close on September 25, 2009. To submit a proposal and for more information visit: http://www.web2expo.com/webexny2009/public/cfp/77.

Web 2.0 Expo New York is the leading global gathering of developers, designers, marketers, and business professionals building the next generation Web. This year, the event focuses on the theme "the Power of Less," exploring how the principles of Web 2.0 can turn constraints into opportunities and drive creativity. The event will explore how transparency, participation and collaboration can break down silos and increase efficiencies. With that in mind, Launch Pad challenges Web 2.0 companies to showcase innovative and promising new products and services that withstand the test of venture capital and consumer scrutiny in challenging economic times.

"We're excited to be bringing the Launch Pad program to Web 2.0 Expo New York to explore what the East Coast has to offer," said Brady Forrest, Web 2.0 Expo Co-Chair. "The East Coast has its own rich start up culture so we are looking forward to engaging with media savvy companies- companies that will take advantage of real-time data streams, sensors in phones, the explosion of social media data and beyond."

Web 2.0 Expo New York Launch Pad will feature five finalists selected by a panel from the initial call for submissions. These five will then get five minutes on stage at the event to present a live demo. Web 2.0 Expo New York's audience and a panel of industry experts will review and provide real-time, candid feedback. A People's Choice Winner will be announced at the end of the program where audience members vote using SMS for their top choice based on the demos. Votes will be tabulated in real-time and projected live on screen.

A forum for creativity, engineering, and innovation, Web 2.0 Expo New York includes a multi-track conference, an "unconference" program, a major tradeshow, and many networking events. Conference tracks include: Landscape & Strategy, Design & User Experience, Social Media, Development, Fundamentals, Web 2.0 at Work, Government 2.0, Mobile, Performance and Analytics. The event targets developers, designers, entrepreneurs, marketers, and business professionals embracing Web 2.0 technologies.

The precious oil is extracted from the seeds of prickly pear cactus plant. After taking out the seeds from the fruits, they are adequately dried and then cold pressed to obtain the oil. Indeed, the prickly seed oil is quite expensive. Well, that is understandable when you consider the fact that the seeds are really tiny and each seed contain only about 5% of oil in it at most, plus the seeds are usually handpicked from the fruits. This means it will take tons of these seeds to produce just one bottle of the oil for commercial purpose. But from its medical properties to its culinary importance, skin lightening, moisturizing, and protection abilities, down to its extraordinary hair care properties, prickly seed oil has got lots of excellent rewards for anyone who pays the price.
