I’ll be speaking about Winksite at the NY Web 2.0 Meetup on September 24th. Hope to see you there. – David Harper
The September Web 2.0 Meetup may be three weeks away (Monday September 24th), but we’re ready to announce a few details about the event.
First, as fall approaches, we’ve decided to add a few new features. We’ve decided upon a mobile theme for the the September Web 2.0 Meetup. We’re going to choose a different theme every month so that we can showcase many of the new and innovative companies in New York who fall into a specific category.
Next, our presenter, John C. Havens, will be streaming the event live via his company, BlogTalkRadio.com. John will not only be fielding questions from our live audience, but his listeners online as well. (We’ll hopefully have our own video equipment set up as well so that we may stream the event live online).
Socialight allows its user to use their mobile phones to “…create, share, and discover virtual Sticky Notes placed at specific locations using your mobile phone or the web.” An example of Socialight’s service include posting a review about a restaurant your friends can read, or you can learn about specific landmarks in an area with additional information before you’re even there. Some of their new features include adding text and photos as well as (soon) video and audio clips. CEO Dan Melinger will be both speaking and presenting on behalf of the company.
Winksite is a company that focuses upon mobile social networking. Users are allowed to create their own personalized website/profile, which are accessible on both regular and mobile Internet browsers, and establish connections with other members of the service. Other additional features include the addition of Twitter, comments, places you like, and more. David Harper, founder of Winksite, is also the co-founder of Mobile Monday NY.
RSVP to the Web 2.0 September 2007 Meetup, or stop on by on Monday September 24th. We’re holding the event at Slate Plus, which is located at 54 West 21st Street.
