Interesting Where 2.0 2011 Presentation last month: We have come a long way from Twittervision. Is it possible to extract knowledge from social data feeds? What services are there or do you have to build it yourself with a SMAQ stack?
John Barratt, "Who, What, Where, When: Creating New Maps from Geo-tweets"

What: What’s Next? - On the eve of his sixth year as a performance artist, Brian Feldman ponders the number one question he gets asked: “What’s Next?”
We had a great turnout at the first Orlando Tweetup at Scruffy Murphy's Pub in College Park last night. According to the sign-in sheets, 106 people came. And it was a pretty diverse group too. We had two high school students (@sdquinn and @gdrage), lots of folks from the Sentinel, people from the marketing and public relations fields, local techies and bloggers and even Local 6 weatherman Tom Sorrells.
So thank you very much to everyone who came and made this event a success. And if you missed it, don't worry, we'll have another one real soon. To stay in the loop, check back on this blog and follow @etanowitz and @orlandotweetup on Twitter. You can also go here to see what people are saying about the event.
Speaking of Tom Sorrells, he was kind enough to mention the Tweetup on the 11 p.m. news and show a picture he took with my wife Daphne and me. Here's the clip:
A chance to meet fellow Orlando tweeps!
Follow @etanowitz and @orlandotweetup for information and check back here.
