SXSW & MIX10 – get information straight from the horse’s mouth

We recently started developing applications for events to help you combine official and relevant pieces of information with your social networks – a new way to follow an event. Today, we are launching two of these applications: sobees for SXSW and sobees for MIX10 .

Our sobees event application aggregates:
  • Flickr photo stream
  • Google news
  • Twitter real time search
  • Official RSS feed from the event
  • Official Twitter messages from the event
  • And your Twitter / Facebook account(s), so that you will be able to update your status on your social networks directly from the application!

However, we wanted to do more than simply aggregate random information regarding the conferences: we wanted to add relevance, which is the reason why we partnered with SalsaDev for these new applications. Concretely, they help us analyze the most recent Twitter messages containing #SXSW / #MIX10 and provide you with the trending keywords of each conference. So, no need to be disappointed if you cannot come to the conference, thanks to sobees for SXSW / MIX10 you will be able to follow the event without having to leave you computer!
And if you do attend SXSW, well, come and visit our booth, we’ll be happy to see you!
