The company beat out three other companies. OpticLanes described technology for controlling traffic. Their demo showed a speed limit sign that could change depending on traffic conditions. [Web Link] RiverMuse has software for managing cloud computing environments. It differentiated its product from earlier systems and network management products like CA-Unicenter, IBM's Tivoli and HP's OpenView by automating more tasks. For example, if there's a system problem it can combine messages about the trouble into a single message and it may even fix the problem.

It's ink can work on flexible surfaces and mugs to create animated displays.
The judges for the session were Ken Gullicksen, Morgenthaler Ventures, Saad Khan, CMEA Capital, and Ron Weissman, Apax Partners. Angel investor Marc Burch chaired the session.
