Twas the night before Disrupt

Posted on May 20, 2011. Filed under: Hyperpublic, startups, venture capital |

Twas the night before Disrupt and all through New York

Hackers were getting pumped to meet the mythed startup stork

Who would swoop down from the heavens swaddling cloth in his beak

On a mission to deliver the next Groupme so to speak


Hotels are all booked, Kayak can’t save you now

But thanks to AirB&B, you can unfurrow your brow

Yes, we are living in the future, hotels headed way of the finch

And Uber’s gonna make your transportation a cinch


So what’s going on here, we hear New York is on fire?

Is this boom for real, or simply a figmant of desire?

What I can say for sure is we’re crawling with VC

Fresh off the Acela from a tech hub that used to be…


Yes it seems things have shifted, Boston is shrinking

And West Coast dudes are clearly now into group thinking

That “maybe we need a presence” in the big apple

But khaki’s don’t fly hear, and with skinny jeans they can’t grapple


You see, startup world, who’s watching all this from far

This isn’t the valley and we don’t give a shit about your car

We are the creative class that’s been here for years

And now that applications are cheap and easy, we’re gonna leave you in tears


We may not have search engineers nor are we downstack

But web development is prevalent, and UX is the new black

So when you get off the plane and utter “Palantir”

We’ll smile kindly and reply, “can @Dens buy you a beer?”


But back to Disrupt, it’s a veritable who’s who

With Conway, and Fred, Moot, and maybe even you?

Yes you, Techcrunch reader, coming up through the ranks

With an app only on Testflight and no $ in the bank


You too, can rub elbows with the great Christopher “moot”

If you hack for 24 hours, and present to the suits

And if you are brave enough to use the new Hyperpublic API

Who has two thumbs and a Lerer checkbook? Yep… this guy


All joking aside, we welcome you all to NYC

Land of the Mets, MongoDB and Jay Z

Where “dreams are made” and dumb angel money lost

Strap into your seat and rise above the froth


Who will become this year’s bell of the ball?

Get Roelof on his knees reduced to a crawl

Who has a vision that will change life as we know it

The stage is set, Disrupt is where you can show it

Ha, J, you rock 🙂 Good luck!

BTW, it’s belle of the ball, no?

my hack for tomorrow = writing a script to turn this into a series of haikus

Glad to see mention of Airbnb
Wait till you see what there will be
When KeyWifi emerges to make you free
from tethered or pricey accessibility

whats more my friend
the sharing model renewed
access to all will soon be reviewed
and with tech and social solutions combined
we connect all over seemlesley entwined.
