Xconomy held another sold out forum yesterday afternoon, with more than 225 people pouring into Microsoft’s New England Research & Development Center for our Mobile Madness conference.

A writeup and photo spread of the afternoon’s events and the insights provided by the great array of speakers—including the results of the Mobile Smackdown between iPhone, Android, Blackberry, and Windows Phone advocates—are coming soon. But right now, we wanted to reiterate our deep thanks to the speakers, sponsors, and underwriters who made it possible.

First, a special thank you to Microsoft and Gus Weber, for once again opening the beautiful NERD facility to the innovation community.

A big thanks as well to our event sponsors, each of whom supports the mobile community in a variety of ways: AT&T, Cisco, Hosted Solutions, Invest Northern Ireland, McCarter & English, and UK Trade & Investment.

As always, we’d also like to thank our underwriters and venture members, who support what we do on an ongoing basis. In reverse alphabetical order, our underwriters are: Wolf & Company, WilmerHale , UK Trade & Investment, the Science & Technology Directorate of U.S. Department of Homeland Security, Schwartz Communications, MFA—Moody, Famiglietti, & Andronico , McCarter & English, the Kauffman Foundation, J. Robert Scott Executive Search, Invest Northern Ireland, EMC, Cisco, Biogen Idec, AT&T, and Alexandria Real Estate Equities.

The venture member list includes: Polaris Venture Partners, North Bridge Venture Partners, Launch Capital, Flybridge Capital Partners, Flagship Ventures, Boston Millennia Partners, Atlas Venture, and Advanced Technology Ventures.

We’d also like to thank our Mobile Madness event partners: the Mass Technology Leadership Council, MITX, Mobile Monday, and MOITI, the Massachusetts Office of International Trade & Investment.

And needless to say, the stars of all of Xconomy’s events are the leaders and innovators who volunteer to speak. We’re enormously grateful to our Mobile Madness speakers and showcase participants; you can see the whole list here.

It was another great day-and we couldn’t have done it without you! And there are plenty of other Mass Mobile Month events coming up—hope to see you at one of them soon.

One last thank you on a different front—to Mozy, which will now be providing its MozyPro online backup service to all Xconomy computers across our network. Thank you to the folks at Mozy and its parent, EMC. Our writers will no longer be able to say the computer ate their story!
