The empowered individual" was the theme of the Demo conference that kicked off in January.

"The theme of empowerment is about the power of individuals to select and use products, the power to move markets, the power of new expectations," said Chris Shipley, producer of the Demo conference, in Palm Desert, Calif.

During the two-day conference, almost 70 companies took the stage to vie to become the next Palm or Tivo—two companies that debuted products at Demo and went on to become household names.
