Google's Marissa Mayer does double duty. After judging on a panel, Mayer took about 7 minutes to introduce the News Archive Partner Program, where Google is letting users earch and browse newspapers exactly as they were first printed, with original headlines, articles, photographs, advertisements and cartoons. This picture is a Pott Rum ad from 1972.

More than 1,700 attendees descended on the San Francisco Design Center Councourse Sept. 8 to see 52 companies present at TechCrunch50. Forged by TechCrunch Founder Michael Arrington and serial entrepreneur Jason Calacanis (Mahalo, WebLogs to name a couple), TechCrunch50 is intended as a more startup-friendly show than Demo, the classic startup showcase it intends to slay. Calacanis said he intends TechCrunch shows to carry the free, easy vibe of the Sundance Film Festival. With that in mind, here are some scenes from TechCrunch50.
