Monday morning tidbits:
-- Seattle podcasting service Pluggd said today it has been selected to participate in the next DEMO conference, which runs from Sept. 25 to 27 in San Diego. One or two local companies seem to be regularly invited to exhibit at the emerging technologies conference, which takes place twice a year.
-- Nintendo said that 2 million people have used its free wireless gaming service, called the Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection. In a rather bizarre point of comparison, Nintendo says the population of its Wi-Fi service now surpasses the population of 15 different U.S. states, including Montana, Nebraska and New Mexico.
-- Tickets for the next Mind Camp event have gone on sale at the event's Web site. The next Mind Camp is slated for Nov. 11-12 in West Seattle, and early tickets cost $29 through Sept. 15.
Mind Camp bills itself as a "digitally minded, entrepreneur-driven, overnight Seattle confab" and asks what happens when you put 250 of Seattle's brightest minds together for 24 hours. Let's hope everyone showers first.
--The next nPost.com Seattle networking event for entrepreneurs takes place tomorrow at 6 p.m. at The Great Nabob in lower Queen Anne.
