Caught  a few of the participants this morning and as we wait for the next few rapid fire presentations, some highlights.  Note there are 350 in the audience:

Lending Club:

  • highlighted some lender functionality, paricularly in the secondary market
  • showed the ability of lenders to compare their returns to other lenders

Tempo Debit Card;

  • decoupled debit card
  • sign up online, with 90% approval success
  • offers rewards on your debit card
  • aim to to be the MBNA of debit cards

Wesabe:

  • always my favourite – Gabe showed off the new web interface
  • highlighted accounts, and discussions
  • ability to dig deeper aggregate certain cards and compare expense categories on those cards
  • the iphone app which is significnatly more powerful than the Mint app.  Allows sign up to Wesabe, and editing of expenses though the app
