Chirp, the first official Twitter developers conference, was held today in San Francisco. It was clear that the powers-that-be at Twitter were saving up quite a bit of information to lay on their “ecosystem” of third-party application developers, as the day was filled with nuggets of information.
Watching the Chirp conference live stream on Justin.tv and reading the back channel #chirp tweets, conveniently brought together in one page on TweetChat, it was difficult to keep up with the flood of information that was being made available. Twitter is so notoriously poor at communicating with their developer community and their users, that when they’ve seemingly turned on the fire hose of information, it’s a little overwhelming.
on va en faire d’autres des comme ça – http://j.mp/collpubqc-vid1– la prochaine que je veux organiser sera à Montréal…mais je ne sais pas quand encore, probablement à l’automne.
CloudCamp is an unconference where attendees can exchange ideas, knowledge and information in a creative and supporting environment, advancing the current state of cloud computing and related technologies. As an informal, member-supported gathering, we rely entirely on volunteers to help with meeting content, speakers, meeting locations, equipment and membership recruitment. We also have corporate sponsors that provide financial assistance with venues, food, drink, software, services and other valuable donations

Not sure I will be there, but I’m happy this is happening in Montréal.
Nécrira pas de billet “journalistes vs. média sociaux”. Faux débat. L’espace public. C’est simple non? C’est à propos de ça! #appropriation
Pensez-y! “il faut se questionner, nous, blogueurs, sur l’utilisation que nous faisons des médias traditionnels comme outils de communication”. C’est une ré-interprétation, une appropriation, de la réflexion de Nathalie Collard ce matin. À suivre comme elle le dit si bien…
There should be a Montreal specific badge for Poutine on Foursquare methinks… (posted from @ La Banquise) – badges API calls is what we really want, you know, to grow Foursquare as a game platform, it would open worlds of possibility (and realize the potential I tought Akoha would have, maybe they will get there someday). Just sayin, since they are asking for comments on V2.
Toyota started to design the Prius in 1994, when user-centered analysis and market data were pulling auto manufacturers in a different direction: toward heavy, gas-guzzling SUVs. The Prius was a proposal — a vision that came from a better understanding of the future evolution of the socio-cultural and economic scenario. Now, more than a decade after it was first launched, people like it, even if they did not ask for it when it was conceived. And thanks to its early start, Toyota is well ahead of its competitors.
Lesson: if you know your stuff, trust your guts.
