Now Scott is inaugurating Nate in the role of NYTM Organizer - via a MacBook Pro "bible".
Nate offers the parts of how NYTM will be modified:
- Themed events (this week is twitter apps)
- "official" After Party at Park
ShakeShack 'bot that tracks all of the replies and determines the length of the line at the ShakeShack. Code does not create community, code supports community. ShakeShack 'bot gives a huge amount of latitude - data contains more information. Twitter data is exciting, but unstructured and bringing this information to some form of structure is a challenge.
Second app presentation: TwiTerra
Visualization of retweets on twitter -showing the tweets on the globe (google Earth). Discovered there are a few people who are always RTed, asking for RT is a good way to increase retweeting.
NASA World Wind libraries to create it.
Third app presentation: cotweet
Reminds me of Yammer, but leveraging twitter to communicate. Jesse does a recognition of Heif and then introduces Launchability,development of rapid prototypes (looks/sounds like RubyRedLabs). Creates stream and allows for retweet and forwarding.
Q: shortform signature (karat then the initials) - something that cotweet is proposing.
Fourth app presentation: stocktwits
Venture backed media company - stock tweets and shows the tweets of people. @howardlindzon is the backer and the idea maker of stocktwits.
Fifth app presentation: Shorty Awards
Presented by Greg Gallant - Shorty Awards are about recognizing short form content. They beat out Xmas in the New York Times popular reads.
Who are these guys? "Nothing much" - just a bunch of people who harnessed the crowds opinion.
Sixth app presentation: Klout
Tracking the measure of influence across the social web. Understanding the impact of the individual. Using a bunch of factors (20-ish) to generate the score - and working on creating influentials on "subject.
Q: How do you measure positive "klout" or "negative "klout"? Nothing confirmed yet.
Seventh presentation: botanicalls
An excellent application of twitter as a notification system, a remote sensor and a sense of personification.
Q: "What happens when your plant gets a better klout score than yourself?"
Nate presents his vision of the NYTM:
- Presentation will continue
- Themes - next months theme - mobile meets social.
- Guest MCs
- Community voting - with mobile meets social, go onto the message board and a week before - we will vote three of them to the stage.
Community committee - about "juicing the system" - ensuring that communication occurs. Members will connect, evangelize and report. If you are embedded in a niche network, you love to share and connect knowledge and people and you really like to organize - then we need you.
If you want to be part of this - either:
- email Nate at nate [at] innonate.com
- blog a post about the idea and why
- post your thoughts on the NYTM Message board
