Banff, Canada | Filemobile was fortunate to be asked to participate in this year's nextMEDIA Conference | June 5-7, 2009 | Banff, Canada. The conference is hosted by Achilles Media. Listed below are my notes from the conference. It would be great to share various perspectives from those who attended. Remember that these are my own rambling points so please comment or let me know what you think ...
Friday, Jun 5, 2009 | Day 1 I Arrived in Calgary and a meeting with the Sun Life Financial National Business Development team. Then headed out to Banff for the kick-off of the Calgary Democamp session where we presented Media Factory and some samples of campaigns that utilize Filemobile's white label applications for UGC Contests (Example | Kraft '10 in 10' Celebration Tour and Video Communities (Example | Mesh 'My Media' community. Also got a chance to check out some interesting applications including:
- Touchmetric | Survey builder for iPhone & iTouch; uses technology called 'Juggernaut'
- Wopsle | A platform to generate 'twitter-like' feeds, including the ability to create structured feeds, setup fields, groups, lists, etc.
- Assn.ca | 'Likeylikey' iPhone app which allows users to see recommended nearby points of interest.
- yycblogs.com | Blog aggregator, focused on Calgary blogs using Drupal.
Following today, I'll have two more blog posts for Days 2 and 3 with notes and thoughts on the conference sessions, so stay tuned. In the meantime, here are some links to great coverage of the event:
