Hey Kevin:

I've found this tool completely worthless in terms of use. It's like a player-piano, great to listen to but worthless if you want to use it.

Tweetdeck, my phone and RSS feeds have proven much better at aggregating on the fly + finding what I need. I've used those tools to meet people from all over the world, have on-the-fly meet-ups + help out newbies.

This "tool" is more of a novel aggregation presentation, like couture: cute to look at, useless in terms of functionality.

Maybe it's different for those not at the conference. That's a possibility that I can't gauge. Your thoughts?

Brad - Great to hear you're having another good year at the festival.

If you're on your phone/or on the move I suspect it is not nealry as useful as it is to folks outside "Austin City Limits" -- if at all. Most of my tweetups, for example, rely more on mobile phone than anything else.

That said I do think that this app does a great job of sorting through tons of tweets and serving them up for you. The swarm page is most useful of all. I think it has use beyond the event and is worth a second look when Kentucky reclaims you.

Kevin Dugan

Brad - Another thought. The site is interesting to folks not at the event and their on the ground presence caters to attendees. Some other folks are suggesting that the site doesn't really do anything as well. But I disagree. The swarm page, imo, could be "kind of a big deal."

Cacophony may be the perfect word to describe Twitter. Nicely done.


I want to switch myself on Web2.0 Application Development, i was searching some stuff about Web2.0, Social Media, Social networking and Blogs, by passing Google Search i came acroos your website which has excellent resources of Web2.0 and e-Marketing, I read lot of stuff about Social media on the following website http://www.exploremyblog.com/html/blog_entry_category.php?cat_id=11&cat=Social+Media as well and find similar information and resources.


I found this "tool" very interesting! I had not heard of it until reading this blog. I agree, I think the "Swarm" page is the most impressive. Also, the "What's Popular" page is interesting to analyze. I am amazed to see how this social media has taken off. However, as interesting or "cool" this function may be, I don't know why its necessary...


I do not even know how I ended up here, butt I thought this post was great. I do not know who you are but certainly you are going to a famous blogger if you aren't already ;) Cheers!


Everything is very open with a clear desccription of the challenges. It was trruly informative. Your website is very useful. Thanks for sharing!


Please let me know if you're looking for a writer for your site. You have some really good articles and I think I would be a good asset. If you ever want to take some of the load off, I'd love to write some material for your blog in exchange for a link back to mine. Please send me an email if interested. Thanks!
