In this video, Ed Lucero demonstrates Eventster, an event discovery app now available for IOS devices. It comes to us from Tackable, a Silicon Valley Startup that found that its photo sharing technology was really more interesting to folks looking to find and share event experiences.
Events are perfect for mobile,” Lucero said. “Open up the app, and within seconds, you’re checking out the most anticipated live events happening in your city this weekend. Our promise: Never be bored again. Or, you know, become a little more interesting than you were before.”
I got a chance to talk to the folks at Eventster this week, so I downloaded the app for myself. My reaction: “Finally, something that uses Facebook that might actually be useful for business!”

In this episode of Meet the Startup, Chris Teso, founder of the Twitter stream commerce platform Chirpify, talks to us about product evolution and what it is like raising money as a sole founder.
Chirpify turns Tweets into transactions, enabling consumers and businesses to buy, sell, donate and transact in-stream on Twitter. These are social, device agnostic, frictionless, in-stream, one step payments. We do this in real time at scale. By removing all frictions of a traditional payments or e-commerce system, Chirpify transforms Twitter from a broadcast platform into a transactional one. To transact on Twitter Chirpify users need only Tweet simple commands such as “buy”, “pay” and “donate”.
A Tip of the Hat goes to Silicon Florist for pointing us to this story.
