You know a great founder when you know they have spent their vacation hacking something together cause they can’t – stop making stuff.
Twingly’s summer project is based on their Twingly Live. Twinlgy Boards collects all the Twitter #tags on a certain topic, and visualized it day by day, tweet by re-tweet. The developer behind it, Martin Källström, Twingly´s founder and CEO is responsible for a piece deliciously well executed data visualisation.
Is this the prettiest CSS we have seen in a very long time? Yes. It´s nice to have full control all the way, says Martin Källström about his summer endavours. Yes, a true hacker meets design founder with a mind that “design-like-you-give-a-damn”.
So far it works in Chrome/Safari/Ipad browsers, so keep your eyes open on monday when we try it out at the PolitikerUtmaningen.se. So if you want to see some action, tag #PolitikerUtmaningen or #LiveBoards.
Social Swedish Webcamp is held yearly at Tjärö, an island outside Karlshamn i Sweden, where 404 (!) participants gathered this year to talk about the future of the internet, how we can use it as a tool to create a better society. Here are a few clips, rants and raves from an epic weekend that i have been a part of for the second time around. What I love about it most its like an eco system of its own, talks and camping, never has the startup and tech/media elite been so domestically downsized – and we liked it.
A standing ovation and kudos for making this happen again to the founders Kristin Heionen and Tomas Wennströms, and their dog Jaiku + everyonewho helped out.
I missed #mrkrax
This is an uncomplete list, there are a few more things that fit in here.
If i was to complete my wishlist for next year, it goes like this:
more detalied tech talks, preferably on Ruby on Rails or Sinatra.
A two day conf (i think we can agree on that to squeese out as much time for valuble thought, talks and sessions)
Al respect to the grid. It has its beauty, but when you reach over 300 people, a need for overview steps in. I suggest people sending in talks in advance, and then being ablt to show intrest for talks. This way also enables people to discower that if two peopl are talking about A, maybe one of then can go for thet slim and niched talk B, instead of using up airtime, giving another A talk. Check out Reboot for another way of doing it, solution in drupal. At GeekGirlMeetup.com we have used this way of working, with out the “showing intrest” talk, where @mariasoderberg has had the guidning role of handling contributions to the scheme and grid, guidning poeple with their talks and putting together a wonderful program.
