hashDSM - Des Moines In Real Time
January 26, 2011projects
A couple nights ago we launched one of our fun side projects we dubbed hashDSM (or #dsm). Naturally, we built the site on WordPress but the concept is to monitor commonly used Twitter hashtags in Des Moines, Iowa and aggregate them into a real-time stream organized by topics. We crowd sourced the common hashtags from a question on Quora.
There are a few issues left we hope to iron out (like caching for when the Twitter API doesn't respond) but thought we'd get it out there anyway. Questions? Comments? Feedback? Please let us know in the comments or on Twitter.
