At the WSA awards show: Software rocks

Software is hot again. At least that’s the feeling in the air tonight at the WSA Industry Achievement Awards. More than 500 people turned up, and deals were the hot topic buzzing through conversations at the cocktail reception.

“It’s crackling,” said Ed Flinchem, vice president of Melodeo, a nominee for consumer product of the year award for its Mobilcast mobile phone podcasting technology. Melodeo’s most popular podcast might be called a soapcast — a one-minute summary of ABC’s “Desperate Housewives.”

Among the luminaries at the event was RealNetworks CEO Rob Glaser, the night’s keynote speaker. He was looking all business in a black jacket and red tie.
