Greenhouse Exhibitors Sweep Up at Macworld; Deadline for Macworld San Francisco is September 1


A greenhouse is a place for the cultivation of small plants, and the Developer Greenhouse at this month's Macworld Boston Expo served a similar purpose--to offer new developers who had never exhibited at Macworld a place to show off their projects at an affordable price.

Macworld Boston has come and gone, and the Developer Greenhouse has left its mark: Out of over 300 exhibitors at Macworld, 11 out of 18 Greenhouse exhibitors had products that garnered special recognition--which proves again that a new developer with a good idea can, if given a chance, be successful.

MacWEEK magazine gave "Hot Pick" awards to companies that impressed the magazine with their cutting-edge ideas. Nine Developer Greenhouse exhibitors got "Hot Pick" awards:

* Adrenaline Software, for Adrenaline Numbers and Adrenaline Charts, which are spreadsheet and 3D-graphing OpenDoc parts

* Alco Blom, for an update to URL Manager Pro, a bookmark manager for Netscape Navigator

* Digital Harbor, L.C., for WAV, an OpenDoc word-processing container part

* PaceWorks, for Dancer, a QuickDraw GX-based 2D animation tool

* PointCast, for PointCast Network, a product that shows online news items on your Mac OS-compatible computer's screen when the computer is idle

* Pedagoguery Software, for Gif.gIf.giF, which creates animated GIF files of a user's screen

* Terry Morse Software, for Myrmidon, a utility that converts documents to HTML

In addition, Macworld magazine pointed out several dozen "Notable Products" in its daily Expo handouts and in news items on its Web site. Among them were two Greenhouse exhibitors:

* Rockstar Studios, for Internet Setup Monkey, a tool that lets network administrators automatically configure networked Mac OS-compatible computers for TCP/IP and other Internet products and services

* Royal Software, for LiveCard, a utility that makes HyperCard stacks accessible over the Internet

Delighted by the Developer Greenhouse's success, Apple will be contributing to next January's Greenhouse at Macworld Expo San Francisco. (Doug Houseman is the organizer of the Developer Greenhouse.) However, ENTRIES ARE DUE BY SEPTEMBER 1, so you need to apply immediately. (The Developer Greenhouse is a juried exhibition--not all entrants get to exhibit.)
