TwitterVision/FlickrVision

Flickr, Google, Google Maps, mashup, Twitter
If you're a twitter nut -- not that there is anything wrong with that -- or are just plain bored, head over to Twittervision, a real-time geographic visualization of posts to Twitter. It's all thanks to google's open API (thanks guys/gals......you ROCK!!!). It's kinda cool to have it opened -- specially in 3D mode -- on a large panel. Kinda makes you feel like the "Big Guy Upstairs", listening to peoples "prayers". Also check out flickrvision, which does for flickr what twittervision does for twitter.....I like it better.

Day two is a little slower, I'm not sure if it's because of subway operation not kicking in until 9:00 am (sunday service) or if it's the drink fest at the Library Pub last night.....maybe a bit of both. It's getting busier and hopefully by noon we'll be at full capacity. In the meantime here are some pics. Tune into the our live video streams via PodCamp Toronto's website or better yet come on down to Church and Gould and say Hi in person.
