Toms Shoes Founder, Blake Mycoskie, at SXSW

One of the most inspiring talks I’ve ever heard. “Giving is good for business”.

Toms is going to unveil a new “one for one” product on April 5. Exciting. I’m personally hoping it will be a bag to go with my new Kenya Striped Cordones.

It was fun to meet some of the Toms gang -all wearing high style footwear, of course! Energetic, happy, motivated, beautiful people. Here’s Brad Otts:

Jessica Shortall, Toms Director of Giving, and friend.

More Toms people. God bless them.

Kilts in tandem.

On the street.

Lots of beautiful LA people in SF for The Launch Conference

I’m surprised at how many LA-based startups I’ve met — its great that The Launch Conference is building a strong bridge between LA and Silicon Valley. I spotted one of the most beautiful and fabulously turned out women from across the room, wearing Valentino (coat) and Lavin (bag)… who turned out to be Jade Calacanis.

Jason had a nice label in his custom-made suit with Zegna fabric.

Nick Bicanic of is helping everyone find each other with one click..very cool.

Jose Caballer sporting Dolce and Gabana frames, Ben Sherman jacket, American Apparel sweatshirt and Threadsy t-shirt…catch him on This Week in Web Design every Tuesday at 3pm.

These guys from 140Fire look like they could be in a Diet Coke commercial. Cool technology that gets people to interact with ads they’re watching within live video.

Kevin Pollak and Dave McClure, whose t-shirt is an inspiration to us all: “Believe in your fucking self”. Thanks Dave!

Its great that Launch brought some students from that university down south.

David Guetta at MidemNet, Cannes

The conference tweet board lit up with comments about his scarf and sweater not to mention those amazing shoes. He gave a very inspiring talk about the importance of pursing your passion when you’re very young – and that he doesn’t listen to (artistic) advice from people under 25.

CES and ShowStoppers…booth babes and pretty boys

Let the gilt begin.

The Wynn hosts one of the best spreads in Vegas to lure the press…

Sweet corduroy jacket on Brad Stone, writer for BusinessWeek.

This budding actress didn’t want to give me her name as she was working at one of the booths, but planing to drive to LA after the show for an audition the next day. The light was much better in the ladies’ room.

Guy Kawasaki sporting a Fedora.

It turned out to be a lovely afternoon around 11 pm. Stewart Alsop, Alsop Louie Partners, holds up the sky for us.

Larry Marcus, Walden Venture Capital, early investor in Pandora, also known as the drummer for Open Source Band.

Maksim Ioffe, CEO and founder of a very cool startup — Dijit, offering a universal remote control for Smartphones and tablets.

Tianna Stevenson, bnet TV, looking like a China doll.

SF MusicTech Summit at the Kabuki


Not sure how Ted Cohen managed to match the decor at the Kabuki, but he looks like he’s had a vacation – yes?

Aric Kurzman, from hot startup Mobile Roadie, really had the details down with his Oliver Peoples glasses.

Always good to see Gabe Adiv. He’s looking dabber in his John Varvatos and Ray Bans.
