justSignal Demo 09 Demo – Have your data and eat it too!

On February 25th I put up a justSignal Tracker for Demo 09. I had fun today watching the tracker (you can find it here) reel off all the tweets about Demo and the presentations as they happened.

With all due respect to Demo and Facebook the experience with the Facebook Connect widget was, by comparison, lacking.

But that isn’t what I want to tell you about. I’ve decided to make all of the data collected by our justSignal Tracker available for anyone to analyze, hack, present, mash-up and innovate against. To that end I’m putting up an XML file which you can download here containing about 3100 tweets collected through 5pm Pacific today (March 2nd 2009).

Here is the challenge – Parse the data, tell us who gets mentioned most, most good mentions, most bad mentions, most whatever. Make it enlightening. All I ask is that when you publish your site/data you give attribution to justSignal by saying we collected and provided the data for you.

This file is not complete, but will give you a chance to digest the format and begin your development efforts so that when the daily files are released early Tuesday and Wednesday you can grab them an go right to work.

Those files will be linked to in this post (at the end with “UPDATE” by them) – so check back to get the full data for today before 9am Pacific on March 3rd.

I did, just because I’m nosy, take a look at a thing or two in the data:

  • Top 5 Demo Tweeters
    1. nanpalmero – 197
    2. demochatter – 159
    3. larrymagid – 42
    4. ejosowitz – 42
    5. and the irrepressible Rafe – 36
  • Total RE-Tweets: 176
  • Most Replied To:
    1. Rafe – 11
    2. sarahintampa – 10
    3. nanpalmero – 8
    4. podboy – 7
    5. demochatter – 6

I did take a peek at mentions for specific presenters/companies… but I’ll leave that to the developers out there…

After the jump I’ll provide some info on the data file format. Show us what you can do!!!

UPDATE: Here is the first full file. This is every tweet for Demo 09 on March 2nd, 2009.UPDATE: Here is the second full file. This is every tweet for Demo 09 on March 3rd, 2009

Demo 09 – Track the Event on Twitter

As you all may (or may not) know justSignal creates creates solutions that allow you to track specific contexts (subjects, events or topics) on Social Media. Our current widget is focused on Twitter (and why not), with FriendFeed, Google Blog Search and Blog Comments (via Backtype and Disqus) coming after SXSW.

With Demo coming up next week we thought you might want a way to track all the action and engage in conversation with other people attending or just interested.

We won’t be presenting… but we will be serving up this justSignal Tracker… How is that for a demo?

NOTE: All justSignal Trackers come with an iPhone optimized Web Application. Go ahead and point your iPhone/iPod touch at http://justsignal.com/demo09 to view the use the Tracker on your iPhone.

You can bookmark this page (or see the link at the top of this blog page) to return to the Demo 09 justSignal Tracker at any time.

If you’d like to embed the widget in your own page leave a comment below. I’d be happy to provide you the details.
