More sponsors: Graphing Social Patterns, Assembla, and Socialtext
Two great sponsors have arrived on Techmeme, joining four wonderful existing sponsors. But first, some notes on a September sponsor not introduced earlier:
Graphing Social Patterns (blog) is a conference held October 7th-9th in San Jose, CA for developers and marketers on how to build and distribute apps for the Facebook Platform. This event is for both business executives & technical developers who want to learn more about the Facebook environment, and how to reach online communities using social networking platforms and applications. Reid Hoffman and Tim O'Reilly are keynoting. Other speakers can be found here.
Socialtext and Assembla are the new additions (though Socialtext happily appeared in 2006 as well):
Socialtext (blog) is the enterprise wiki trusted most by Global 2000 corporations. As the first wiki company, Socialtext is the leader in making web collaboration secure, scalable and easy to use. A Socialtext wiki is a secure, group-editable website. Instead of sending emails and attachments, Socialtext customers use private web pages to work together.
Assembla (blog) helps you build software quickly, using globally distributed teams. Assembla.com provides full-featured team workspaces, and staffing opportunities. Assembla integrates the tools, the talent, and the know-how into a single disruptive process for getting your product released. Read the Assembla blog for a mix of methodology, hard-earned advice, and rapid-fire product upgrades.
You're hopefully familiar with Techmeme's current sponsors:

Channel 9 is a Developer community that features interviews with the people behind Microsoft Products and Technologies, a wiki and an active general discussion forum. Channel 10 is a community for the Technology Enthusiast that in addition to highlighting relevant Microsoft Products and Technologies profiles those people who are using technology to change our world.
Zoho (blog): Zoho does online office. Zoho offers a wide range of online office and productivity applications ranging from word processors, spreadsheets, presentation apps to CRM, project management, wikis and more. Zoho aims to provide an affordable suite of online applications.
