Yesterday, at 4:30pm, after a long day of demoing oDesk in the TechCrunch50 DemoPit, Michael Arrington dropped by our table to inform us we won an Audience Choice Award and a chance to demo on stage to all 2,000 conference attendees. We were already thrilled at the warm the reception our product had been getting all day, but this was a truly spectacular opportunity and a great way to end the day.
Here’s the demo our CEO, Gary Swart, gave. The panel of experts consisted of Marc Andreessen, Roelof Botha, Paul Graham, Tony Hsieh, and Marissa Mayer.
Thanks to everyone who stopped by our demo table and gave us the chance to earn your vote. And thanks for everyone who blogged, and facebooked, and especially tweeted on our behalf. The twitter activity was amazing. We love these events, as they give us the chance to get in front of users, old and new, and remind us that we’re playing a small part in Changing How the World Works!
