We held the 12th edition of the annual Nantucket Conference on Entrepreneurship & Innovation last week — an event that brings together about 125 founders, investors, and tech industry executives. (I serve on the advisory board that helps put together the event, and moderated two sessions at it.)

This year's conference featured public company CEOs talking about the process of going public...entrepreneurs talking about what happens after you get acquired... sessions on information security, social gaming, and seed investing... and a wrap-up session from "Crossing the Chasm" author Geoffrey Moore, one of Silicon Valley's top thinkers on how new technologies permeate society (or don't).

I'm posting some of the conference audio below (you can either play it here, or download the MP3 files for later listening). You can also see what people were saying about the event on Twitter. Here's coverage of the event from Mass High Tech, Jason Evanish of Greenhorn Connect, and speaker Mike Troiano of Holland-Mark. And if you've ever wanted to see your favorite tech CEO wearing a lobster bib, the conference photo montage will more than satisfy you.
