Zvents and the TeleInterActive Network

As I mentioned, Clarise and I met Allie and Ethan of Zvents, through Andrea.

We were discussing the new direction in which we are taking our service, The TeleInterActive Network. Our service is focused on small businesses, with little or no Internet presence. Maybe they paid someone a lot of money to set up a static web site, updating it is expensive, and it just sits there like a printed brochure in a potential customer's desk drawer. That potential is only realized if they stumble across the web site at just the right moment, but no one has any incentive to visit often.

An Internet presence is a powerful tool for business, only if it provides timely and interesting information to the community the business wants to serve. We help small businesses do this by consulting with them, learning their goals, and hosting open source software to meet those goals. That software may be a CMS to start - we use Mambo. As we work with our customers, we can add blogs, wikis, portals, and other tools as needed.

Andrea and Allie thought one tool that might help our customers is Zvents, and thus they dragged over Eric. After talking with them, we heartily agree. Having a zvent widget on our customer's web site, with appropriate events, can help them easily keep their site current, and providing good information for their communities.

As we bring our customers along in small steps to acclimitize them to the new Web, we'll be reporting on what works and best practices. We have a feeling that zvents will be one of those best practices.

TechCrunch Meetup/Riya Launch Party

Congratulations to the Ojos team! Joseph and I were at the TechCrunch Meetup #4 - Riya Launch Party. The event was a success. Thanks to Mike for being a great host and for Munjal, Tara and Ojos team for the food and drinks.

Do you know who these folks are? I bet Riya can tell you. &#59;D

At the Riya Launch Party

We saw plenty of these shirts tonight. Clarise and I told Tara that we would take daytime TheraFlu, and make the Riya, launch party, and so we did. Many thanks to Tara for adding us to the list.

It was great fun, and I'm sure that Tara gave a great demo - except we couldn't see it or hear it. There were that many people there.

But on Monday, the next phase of Riya's alpha testing launches, with many new features and many new testers, going from 25 users in the first phase to 1000 in the next phase, out of the 5000 requests Ojos received. And as Munjal said, all due to the power of the blogosphere.

We had a great time. We got to catch up with Dan Gillmor, and that's always good.

And we got to meet some interesting people. We really want to thank Andrea, who came over to find out what the "short people" were doing. :p She introduced us to Allie and Ethan. Allie does marketing for the company Ethan started: Zvents. I first read about Zvents on SiliconBeat when they launched at Web2.0

Thanks to Munjal and Mike. It was a great party.

Congratulations again to the entire Ojos crew.

And about all those Google rumours. Mike confirmed that it was true, and then admitted that he was lying through his teeth. They weren't confirmed, denied or ignored, just the butt of a joke. &#59;)

Riya Launch Party

Clarise and I are headed off to the Riya launch party, as hosted by Munjal at Mike's house, after being invited by Tara. Ok, ok, awkward sentence but I wanted to get all the proper links in there. :>>

Congratulations to the entire Ojos crew.

I wonder if all those Google rumours will be confirmed, denied or ignored.

Bizgres

Recently, Navica and InterASC teamed up on project where the customer required we use PostgreSQL as a central data warehouse. Clarise pointed out that PostgreSQL lacked essential attributes to be an efficient platform for data warehousing. In investigating alternatives, we discovered Bizgres. Bizgres is a separate distrubtion based on PostgreSQL with the primary purpose of filling exactly those lacks Clarise had highlighted such as table partitioning and bit map indexing, and the secondary purpose of building a BI suite. As we develop Open Source Business Intelligence, we'll be writing posts describing the enhancements that Bizgres is making to PostgreSQL, and compare Bizgres to Oracle as a DW platform.
