Marathon Tracking Update

Well were just putting some of the finishing touches on the Marathon Tracking System for Android and going through our alpha test cycle, we expect to have a version published on the app store by Thursday at the latest. There have been some discussions to add support for iPhone but our focus is on ensuring the quality of the Android version. If there is sufficient time prior to the event we will attempt to get a version for iPhone up and running. A preview of the mapping interface after the break.

Bar Camp Calgary Touch Voting Platform & Zyris Multi-Touch Technology

Yesterday's Bar Camp Calgary event was a success, lots of presenters all with great topics. For those not familiar with a Bar Camp, it is categorized as an 'un-confrence', meaning unlike a traditional conference where speakers are pre-selected and announced in advance. An unconference allows attendees to post their topics on a board which are then voted on.
