Webjam 8 Photo Gallery

If there is a Web 2.0 version of heaven, it must be Webjam. Last night Sydney's Bar Broadway was packed to the nines as 18 presenters got three minutes each on stage at Webjam 8 to show off their hot Web work. We were there to see it all go down.

Presenters spent a lot of time looking down at their laptops (typically MacBook Pros) as they demonstrated their work to the audience.

One of the last presenters prepped his presentation. Most, if not all of the audience members and presenters, sported some form of smartphone or laptop.

These cool people got their table (right next to the bar) early and stayed there all night. Admittedly they didn't have the best view of the presenters.

Barbie beanie? What was he thinking? On the other hand it does look pretty cool. But where do you even buy one of those?
