Thanks to everyone who submitted entries for our first demo event! We received far more applications than we could accommodate for this first round. The bad news: We couldn’t possibly fit all of your presentation pitches into one event. The good news: We’re already thinking of new ways to feature innovative projects, products and ideas in the coming months! We’re still nailing down a concept but the next event may focus on news and gaming.
For those of you who scored tickets to this Tuesday’s demo at Tableau Software, here’s a complete list of the presenters:
Tableau Software, Ellie Fields
“A New Way of Visualizing Data Online: Tableau Public,” a free software product that journalists and bloggers can use to create and publish interactive data visualizations. Fields will look at Washington State Census data and use Tableau’s built-in geocoding to map it, put it in a dashboard and publish the visualization online. All in less than 5 minutes flat, no programming needed.
Intersect, Monica Guzman
“Curation in Real Time and Beyond,” a demo of Intersect, a social platform where people connect through experiences they chart in time and place. Learn how how journalists can tap into the platform’s context-adding features to curate rich stories from the experiences of a community–past and present.
Journalism That Matters, Brian Glanz
“Building An Online Unconference For Journalism,” an open source publishing network with a social layer.
The Seattle Times, Heidi de Laubenfels
“Niche Sports Apps for iPhone,” a look at development options, business models and user behavior lessons for The Times’ pay-to-use Husky football app.
Microsoft FUSE labs, Sameer Halai
“myMontage.com,” a flexible web-based service that makes it fun and easy to create and share a visual album of the web on the topics you care about. You can design your Montage around any topic you can imagine by adding content that pulls information from a variety of sources, including RSS feeds, Twitter, Bing News, and YouTube.
