Here are the some videos, slides and pics from the most recent NYC Data Business Meetup. The videos are unfortunately not of the greatest quality, but are good enough to watch.
Also, note to self: make sure that our audience of 200+ sits closer to the stage, so that the room doesn’t look tragically empty on camera (rookie mistake)!
In order of appearance:
1) Todd Papaioannou, CEO, Continnuuity, a stealth big data startup, based in Palo Alto, CA and backed by Andreessen Horowitz, Battery Ventures, Data Collective and a number of high profile angels. Todd was previously Chief Cloud Architect for Yahoo.

Sailthru helps brands cut through the clutter and build trust with their customers by recognizing and acting upon their individual interests. Sailthru’s technology creates individual user profiles associated with each person’s email address and online behavior. Sailthru’s algorithms gauge each individual user’s intent and match appropriate content and frequency of email communications such that every email is tailored to the unique user. That means they send as many permutations of an email as there are recipients. All simultaneously, all automated and all in real time.
