To report on how the latest start-ups are going to make life easier to hack, I’m returning to San Francisco for TechCrunch50.

Basically, 50 companies present to some of the most influential venture capitalists and press (me?) to launch their company and explain what it is. The only requirement is TechCrunch is when they launch, so no one knows what’s going to be presented.

Last year Mint, my favorite money management tool, launched and even won Best Presenter (check out the link to win a free pass to TechCrunch50).

There is one little secret they let out – Ashton Kutcher will be launching Blah Girls at the event.

I will be video podcasting, which means it will launch sometime next week (hopefully this weekend).

Let me know if you’re going in the comments.
