Creating Your Own Echo Chamber With The E2 Stream | The Digital Letter - Official Blog of Kenneth Yeung + TheLetterTwo.comWe’ve all seen it. Companies are advertising on television or through their own websites and when they say they have a Facebook page or Twitter account, they’re taking you to that service. You’re no longer centralizing that conversation. It’s going to be impossible for you to tie it all back together.
02.08.2011– SAN FRANCISCO—Echo (www.aboutecho.com) today launched StreamServer, a new cloud platform that gives media companies, brands and startups the power to aggregate and control content and activity from their site, social networks, applications and more into one real-time database. Echo unveiled the new platform this morning before a large audience at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art alongside NBC, Reuters, Sports Illustrated, Interscope, and other customers already working with the new service. Like never before, the Internet is awash with activity information.

Stay updated about the Synaptic Web on Twitter via @SynapticWeb The Synaptic Web By Khris Loux , Eric Blantz , Chris Saad and you... The Internet is constantly evolving. As the speed, flexibility and complexity of connections increase exponentially, the Web is increasingly beginning to resemble a biological analog; the human brain. But what exactly is it that’s makes us, or the Web, smart?
Synaptic Web Scenarios: How to save mainstream media using real-time platforms to re-invent the way we listen to, engage with and share stories. Note: Cut to the chase… For mainstream media to survive, if not thrive, it must embrace social media and take on the critical role of curator of the conversation.
When Storify appeared on the collective journalism screen a few weeks back at TechCrunch Disrupt , it inspired a lot of oohs, ahhs and speculation as to how it would work for journalists . There are similar curation tools out there, like KeepStream and Curated.by , though they focus primarily on collecting tweets (Correction: KeepStream also allows for Facebook integration). Storify, on the other hand, allows a user to organize various media (text, documents, video, images) and social media (Twitter, Facebook, etc.) into an orderly, linear presentation. The story pieces retain all of their original links and functionality – and the full presentations are embeddable on any site. It has a very easy-to-use search for social media keywords and works using a drag-and-drop functionality.
A new frontier of opportunity is in the ways news is being developed, packaged, and transmitted . Curated filters are becoming more interactive. From the New York Times offering personalized news recommendations , to this past week's launch of TheDaily , a subscription-based app for the iPad i ndexed by Andy Baio on the Web , and the upcoming release of News.me .
I’m speaking tomorrow morning at the Social Media Breakfast for the San Francisco East Bay . It will be the third time in as many weeks that I’ve been asked to discuss social media trends. I don’t think it’s a coincidence.
Med apps og Web2.0 tjenester kan du samle backchannel-dialogen effektivt! Hva er Backchannel? Har du holdt en presentasjon engang så har du sikkert lagt merke til at det foregår mye i salen. Noen visker, snakker litt seg i mellom, noterer av og til hva du sier på et papir, mens andre kanskje noteter digitalt. Det engelske uttrykket for alt som foregår «utenfor» presentasjonen er backchannel og ble utviklet innenfor lingvistikk tilbake i 70-årene for å beskrive lytterens atferd under verbal kommunikasjon. I dag har begrepet blitt tatt i bruk igjen for å beskrive alt som skjer i sosiale medier mens en foredragsholder foreleser.
First let me just say that no, robots will not replace journalists. Robots will likely only replace jobs with particularly low cognitive loads. So, maybe press release re-writing bloggers, but not thinking, analyzing, interviewing, friendly journalists. In an on-going experiment called “ My Boss is a Robot ,” an alliance of journalists and computer scientists aim to combine the distributed human brainpower of Amazon’s small-task outsourcing engine, Mechanical Turk , with a robot boss pre-programmed to absorb a myriad of discrete human-accomplished tasks into something resembling the work of a single person. Niki Kittur, a Carnegie Mellon assistant professor of Human Computer Interaction and freelance science and technology writers Jim Giles and MacGregor Campbell are heading up the experiment.
Yesterday we announced a new Echo product called StreamServer . There is very little more I can say that Khris Loux has not already said so eloquently on stage at the #e2 launch event When you work so hard and long on something (depending on how you look at it, StreamServer was either 15, 2.5 or 1 year in the making) its hard to sum it all up in one, 1 hour event. But that’s what we tried to do.
The foundation of the Web is moving from one of unchanging static pages to continually updated streams fed by external services. Gone is the time when publishing an article or a site was the final step in creating content. Instead, this can often signify the beginning of the content's life, as it is shared, retweeted, liked, commented on, and further distributed. Echo , a company that first made its name in the comments space, explained to a full hall of industry onlookers Tuesday morning that dynamic social experiences are going to rule the future of the Internet, further arguing they have placed themselves at the center of this trend, having built a flexible environment for people to tap into the activity streams and benefit from the Web's continued evolution, instead of seeing visitors capitulate to household name social networks.
Every social media coordinator or director would like to think that they are community managers. However, the job isn’t just Facebook updates, Google+ hangouts, and retweets. It takes strategy to run a highly active community. It takes creativity to encourage your fans to not only participate in your community, but do so on an ongoing basis. It takes risk to stand out from the rest. It takes tremendous content and intelligence to grow and excel your community.
We are excited to let everyone know about an expanded relationship with Echo , a leading provider of real-time social technologies including comments, recents comments and news rivers. In October 2010 we announced the availability of an integration between Janrain Engage and Echo to make it easy for organizations using both Janrain and Echo products to enable users to link their site level authentication with the embedded Echo functionality. Today we are excited to announce that Echo has chosen to use Janrain Engage as the default, bundled login technology for the next version of its products – echo 2.
