Kevin Cawley wrote a great summary of the New Tech Meetup last night on his blog. I would like to thank Robert Reich (of Medium) for organizing this event. I think it’s a great resource for Boulder.
You can watch the video of the event here (less than an hour) thanks to ClickCaster (covered previously). It features Joe Pezzillo showing off the Metify Anthricite web mining desktop toolkit, Alek O. Komarnitsky showing off his grass growing and crazy Christmas light coolness, and Jean McAuliffe talking about Agile (well, let’s say fighting about it with the always interesting and opinionated Dave Taylor).
In addition, I was there showing off one of my (several) pet projects last night called earFeeder. earFeeder generates a customized RSS newsfeed based on your favorite musical artists that it finds on your machine. The feed informs you about new releases on iTunes, upcoming concerts, and other news.
I built earFeeder for a couple of reasons. Primarily, I wanted it for myself. Secondarily, I wanted to keep my programming skills sharp and learn more about RSS. People seem to like it, so I’ve opened it up to the world in “perpetual beta” (for now). Give it a try and let me know what you think. I also have the obligatory earFeeder blog if you’re really interested in the product and want to keep up with the latest news, comical bugs, and generally help to improve it.
Next next meetup is November 7th. Show off your cool stuff by contacting Robert.
