Ignite talk about Tagzania in Where 2.0 2007

  1. 1. Tagzania There's No Place Called Nowhere Luistxo Fernandez
  2. 2. Tagzania is a very simple mashup A for places Instead of URLs, you tag real-world locations
  3. 4. Our own location: the periphery
  4. 5. We’re, hmmm, Basque
  5. 6. CodeSyntax We're a small normal web dev company Customers believe we "design web pages" Work with free software (Python, Zope)
  6. 7. CodeSyntax We're earning a living, not getting rich Tagzania's a side project, a passion An experiment if you will Global traffic, metrics, competition...
  7. 8. Competition
  8. 9. Not too many expenses. Mashups and projects for bigger partners Business model
  9. 10. Tagzania on its own is worth an extra little push Thinking about the tagline - Tagging the planet “ Your personal geography” Not so much neogeography
  10. 11. The Firefighter's questions: - Where's The Fire? - How do I get there? - What kind of place am I going to find? Geography, old and new
  11. 12. Where's the fire?
  12. 13. How do I get there?
  13. 14. Review, comment... What kind of place is it?
  14. 16. The Long Tail
  15. 17. <ul><li>Interact with other tools: </li></ul><ul><li>Twitter (and clones) </li></ul><ul><li>Upcoming </li></ul><ul><li>Popfly </li></ul><ul><li>etc </li></ul>The road ahead
  16. 18. <ul><li>Display other imagery: </li></ul><ul><li>Mapstraction: Yahoo Maps, MS Virtual Earth, OpenStreetMap </li></ul><ul><li>Openlayers to display WMS </li></ul>The road ahead
  17. 19. - Far in the periphery, lost in the long tail of the geographic web... - Open to everyone - A partner with a global viewpoint, not married to anyone in particular, a virgin state...
