Twitter Feedback Applications

January 28, 2009 Leave a comment

This evening we launched our latest Twitter application for BostonTweet. BostonTweet provides real time Twitter updates about entertainment, promotions, crowds, menus & discounts at local Boston restaurants, bars, stores & venues. With our new application followers of BostonTweet (both Twitter and non-Twitter) can view, search and read the reviews and replies about Boston food and entertainment.

As I previously wrote in Corporate Messaging & Customer Feedback Applications these applications are available for customization for corporations, restaurants, websites, radio stations and any business who wants instant feedback on their product and services.

BostonTweet has been active for just over a month now with close to 2,000 followers and many great conversations.  To follow BostonTweet visit Twitter, to view some of our  previous conversations visit the links below.

I’ve recently received a few emails asking if TOKiBiz, Inc. works with corporations in addition to our work with startups?  The answer is a resounding yes!  

Corporations are obviously a different beast than startups but both can benefit from an outside, experienced perspective on the integration of Web 2.0 into their business.  With corporations we tend to focus on new applications that can complement or add to their current business.  Anything from the integration of a social network for employees and/customers to strategizing the integration of their data into a more web friendly subscription model platform.

I tend to prefer working with people face to face so if you’re located in the Boston metro please feel free to call me (617-947-8071) so we can book a meeting.

Online Notes from WebNotes – A Cambridge Startup

July 27, 2008 1 comment

I forgot to mention that I attended WebInno18 a couple of weeks ago.  The event was packed, which made it difficult to find anyone, however one great thing that came from the conference was being introduced (via their presentation) to WebNotes.  

Created by a bunch of MIT students in Cambridge, WebNotes enables users to “create and manage online annotations.”  In the simplest terms WebNotes makes it easy to highlight text on any web page, save that text to a folder, add sticky notes and share those highlights & sticky notes (directly on the web page) with anyone you want.  If you use the web for research, WebNotes is a terrific service for organizing your findings. Check them out at

In the last few weeks there has been a bunch of great tech events in Boston, including the WebInno mentioned above.  Next on the list is SummerMash Boston (Mashable) which I’ll also be attending – hope to see you there.
