The Real Time Web: A view from the trenches – special guest Tony Haile, bit.ly, chartbeat, and twitterfeed.
Betaworks’ own Tony Haile (Blog and Twitter) joins us on the podcast. Tony is currently working on cutting edge real-time projects like Chartbeat, Twitterfeed, and the leading URL shortening service Bit.ly Listen as we get a view from Tony who is at one of epicenters of web development for the Real Time Web.
Twitterfeed is a service that will auto-update your Twitter or Ping.fm, identi.ca, custom laconica installations, and via HelloTxt or Ping.fm, with your blog entries or any other type of RSS feeds you might have like YouTube, Flickr, Last.fm, or a new product feed.
Chartbeat is the “heartbeat of your website” offering a real-time dashboard that shows how many people are on your site at any given moment, where they are, where they’re coming from, and what they’re doing.
bit.ly allows users to shorten, share, and track links (URLs). Reducing the URL length makes sharing easier. Unique user-level and aggregate links are created, allowing users to view complete, real-time traffic and referrer data, as well as location and metadata.
