door64.com party at Austin 360 Condos

39

Door64 had a party at Austin 360 Condos on Thursday, August 20.  It was packed.  It was a $10 cover and 2 drink tickets in a gorgeous setting on the 9th floor where the pool and observation deck are located.  Since it was a hot, steamy Austin night and there was a “no drinks” sign at the entrance to the pool, most people crowded into the long, narrow inside space where it was cool.  It’s quite the luxury condo, with a mini movie theater at one end of the space and a bar at the other end.  Matt Genovese, how did you swing such a cool venue? By the way, you don’t need pronounce the e at the end of Matt’s last name.

We weren’t able to interview much because of the noise level, so it’s mostly just pictures of people at the event.  Maybe you can spot yourself if you were there. It was a great networking event, I ran in to Heather Havenwood, who did my SXSW interviews, and Meg Strout who was acompanied by a power auto seller Aaron Smith with Motorphilia, and Conversion Scientist Brian Massey to name a few.   I told Meg to check out Aardvark, because she asked me what was hot right now and I just had a foray in to this new “ask your social network” app yesterday. 

You can also see this video on Metacafe, Blip.tv and Veoh and I encourage you to rate it up and review it if you like it.  And if you’re in the video, drop me a note and I’ll include you in the blog post, (note at how many minutes in to the video you appear).

my favorite twitterware apps

Twhirl – Twhirl is a popular desktop client based on Adobe AIR so it requires the AIR download. You’ll find AIR useful for other apps also. Twhirl has a lot of cool features including multiple Twitter accounts, connect to Friendfeed, post image to Twitpic, post to Pownce and Jaiku simultaneously, and search using Tweetscan. I use it on my Windows Vista sidebar along with . . .

AlertThingy! provides a connection to twitter, friendfeed, flickr, tinyurl and allows cross commenting. It’s better than it sounds and is used as a twitter replacement by many who want to make more sense out of twitter and narrow down their focus on specific people and topics.

let the good comments roll with diskus!

I have to admit to being a comment poor blog.  And I’m remiss in not putting akismet and disqus on here sooner.  Tonight akisment gave 32,000 plus spam comments a beating.  They’re gone.  Room now for your comments and disqus should make things a lot more interesting.

I got turned on to the disqus comment system by Shey Smith on his most excellent blog, http://sheysmith.com and got really motivated to install it when I heard Leo Laporte and Amber Macarthur rolling in the aisles over this on their net@nite podcast broadcast live today.  It helped push me more that Dave Winer, grandaddy of rss and blogs, is using this as well.

Disqus brings video comments, along with a community of commenters, better comment formatting, and much more.  And the wordpress plugin install was as easy as could be.

sxsw del.icio.us network starting, join up!

Were you at SXSW and want to keep the experience going and stay in touch with others you met there? Here’s how! I put out a tweet to request that anyone in our “network” who has a del.icio.us account and is willing to share their del.icio.us “name,” to please send it my way and I will compile the list. This way, we can add each other to our del.icio.us networks. One of the drawbacks of all these social networking sites, is the separate interfaces, usernames and such. We are all hoping for the ultimate Mashup of social networking one day.

I’m very excited to get this ball rolling and even more excited to explore all the great bookmarks that our friends who are hot on sxsw are sharing. If you would like to be included, just post a comment here with your del.icio.us “name” and I will add you to our network or send a direct message to http://twitter.com/sxswtwit . Then, just follow these easy steps:

  1. Go to del.icio.us (sign up for an account if you don’t have one already)
  2. Click on Your Network (top left)
  3. On the right-hand side, in the text box, type in sxswtwit
  4. Click ADD
  5. Now sxswtwit will appear in your network beneath in blue
  6. Click on sxswtwit
  7. You are now in sxswtwit’s bookmarks, but there are none… BUT WAIT
  8. In the gray box at the top, it reads:

    All sxswtwit’s items (0)
    sxswtwit is in your network, view sxswtwit’s network

  9. Click on VIEW sxswtwit’s network

That’s where the magic happens. There you see all the bookmarks shared by everyone in the network, which can be a little messy OR you can look over at the right. There you can click on each member’s name and look at his/her individual bookmarks. You can even add each member to your own del.icio.us network. As more members join this sxswtwit del.icio.us network, you’ll see them added.

Right now, the only member is http://del.icio.us/springnet (me) but that will hopefully change soon. Join now!

Great idea you say? Well, all the credit goes to GeekyMomma who thought it up for her edtech network and the above is practically word for word from her blog post.

Add your name to the comments below and you’ll be good to go or just send a direct message to http://twitter.com/sxswtwit
