Technology Straight Up!

11 February 2011

Last week I attended Tech Cocktail: Winter Mixer, a technology media mixer for emerging technologies and innovations, at Slaviya restaurant in Adams Morgan.  The event was hosted by Digital Capital Week’s co-founder Frank Gruber and Eric Olson. The purpose for this mixer is to help entrepreneurs by educating and better connecting local technology communities. In attendance were tech influencers, and enthusiasts as well as members from the media (rumor was that the Washington Post’s Rob Pegoraro was there!).

One of the coolest things I came across was a social networking platform called WatchParty. WatchParty is a community that allows people to interact with one another who are watching the same TV show.  Once you are in a WatchParty, there are four features you can use to express yourself and communicate with other audience members (Blip, Flips, Traks, Slide).

This is a really great measuring tool for those who do researching analytics for television networks. This community enables participants to share their opinions on their show in real time.

Several WatchParty’s for you to be on the lookout this week include: Glee, The Good Wife, and Parenthood.

Start a WatchParty or join one!
