donclarkThis clip from last night’s DEMO Alumni party at Mighty captures beret-capped Wall Street Journal tech biz reporter Don Clark — one of the most influential journalists in the Valley — at his other gig as a blues-rock guitarist and singer. Don’s got tone, as guitar players say. A few other folks took the stage for a song or two with the band. Web 2.0 communications consultant Cathy Brooks surprised me with her full, edgy voice in a cover of “Fever.” The rest of us spent the night networking and armchair-quarterbacking Matt’s upcoming takeover of next March’s main DEMO event.

Speaking of DEMO, we are still looking for a few more companies with products that combine innovation, viability, and a good stage show. Send us your application if you haven’t yet.
