Meanwhile, the Silicon Valley October Mobile Monday was a “Barn Buster,” according to organizer Russell Beattie, with over 300 people packed into Google’s auditorium to hear the panel and see the demos. The meeting was broadcast over Userplan’s Flash-based group chat. “About 20 people used the chat and listened to the audio, video was bit choppy, but it worked pretty well,” according to Beattie.
