TwitterSphere at ScotSoft 2011

Scotland IS hosted the annual ScotSoft 2011 conference and Young Software Engineer of the Year award at Edinburgh's Prestonfield House, using a 1.6m PufferSphere XL with TwitterSphere application to display live tweets from delegate and guests attending the day. Sponsored by Internet for Business, the TwitterSphere delivered live tweets as the days speakers steered the assembled ICT industry though the latest and future directions of the sector. Pulling tweets through a tag-cloud visualisation, a quick glance at the sphere gave delegates a chance to react and engage with the rest of the crowd, as well as the messages of the speakers.  The Young Software Engineer of the Year Award announced at the evening Gala Dinner saw Artur Jonkisz awarded first place, and a raft of other young potentials recognised for their hard work. The evening was topped off in fine style by Kevin Bridges, one of Scotland's finest young comedians who brought the evening to an irreverent and side-splitting end.
