Just a quick update for anyone interested in mesh 2008, which is coming up on May 21 and 22 at the MaRS Centre in Toronto: Garrett Camp, one of the founders of StumbleUpon, is coming as our keynote speaker for the business stream (you can see the other keynotes here, as well as some of the other great speakers and panelists we have lined up). We’re pretty excited to be able to bring one of Canada’s leading Web entrepreneurs to Toronto for one of mesh’s “keynote conversations.”
Garrett co-founded StumbleUpon in 2001 with several university friends while he was finishing his degree in software engineering at the University of Calgary. He and a couple of the other members of the StumbleUpon team later moved to San Francisco after getting venture financing, and last year the company was acquired by eBay for $75-million. Garrett is still responsible for StumbleUponâ€™s product design and strategy, and the service has more than 3.5M members.
