Google Maps Bike There…for a safer, healthier, happier world. :-)


kluster, and TED

February 29, 2008 By: Peter Smith Category: Uncategorized

kluster is a crowdsourcing startup in Burlington, Vermont. What do they do? From their process page:

kluster is a place to harness the power of community collaboration to get stuff done. everyone has ideas, we provide a platform to get them out of heads and into the world…where they belong.

we initially built kluster to facilitate large group decision-making during product development, marketing/advertising initiatives, and event planning. then, after the system got its algorithmic brain, we realized it was powerful in virtually any decision-making activity, with groups large or small.

TED (Technology, Entertainment, Design) is an invitation-only conference held annually in Monterey, California. They invite speakers in all sorts of fields to give ‘the talk of their lives’ in 18 minutes or less. I wholeheartedly recommend watching some/most/all of their videos - so many are so good. TED 2008 is going on right now.

kluster just officially launched a few days ago, and it will be used by TED attendees this year.

TechCrunch has a good rundown on what kluster is all about.

Maybe we should look at using kluster to design the ultimate Google Maps ‘Bike There’ feature?
