Chris Larsen's PD07 Keynote Speech
« on: December 16, 2007, 01:49:21 pm »

I had a request to post this on the public portion of The original post can be found here:

Prosper Days 2007 was only 11 months ago, so it's amazing how much the relationship between PMI and some of it's original cheerleaders has deteriorated. I still haven't quite figured out why.

If you would like to see images from PD07 you can check out my blog at:

I just listened to CL's keynote speech again because I wanted to hear the section about 3rd party sites. I think he talked about them in the Q&A portion after the speech. Well the speech is edited and does not contain everything he talked about and showed none of his Powerpoint presentation (I documented most of those with pictures in my PD07 blog).

Anyway, as I was listening I decided to jot down a few notes of what he said. These notes are not verbatim but I do give the time code on the video so that you can listen to that section for yourself.
