This past weekend, I attended the fifth annual BarCampNYC, an international unconference where the attendees design their own panels and attend them. I decided that I wanted to try an experimental panel about designing an application from the ground up. My plan was to go in with a clean slate and see what people came up with.
For the last year, I have been writing and rewriting software to live stream a Twitter hashtag to a screen during an event to create a meta crowd interaction that encompasses the audience and expands its borders to the world outside, allowing those who aren’t attending to interact with the event goers. Finally, after multiple revisions and rewrites, I am releasing Live Tweets to the world.
