A familiar sight at any conference these days, many of the over 180 participants packed into the Microsoft Auditorium at Joomla! Day Malaysia 2011 could be seen busy tweeting away in the Twitterverse about the presentations or updating their blog feeds.
It wasn’t too long before the Twitterverse was knee deep in tweets announcing “Live Updates” from Joomla Day Malaysia 2011 on Saturday morning. Soon enough, the Twitter hashtag #jd11my (for Joomla! Day 2011 Malaysia) was trending as an unofficial conference back channel.
The Twitterati had even started posting early on to announce their presence at the event while others posted photos of the speakers on photo sharing sites. One of keynote speaker Ryan Ozimek quickly found its way to being posted on Twitpic, a Twitter app site. Some also busied themselves commenting on parallel sessions.
While the tweets were rolling in thick and fast, the Joomla! community in attendance made sure that the Twitterverse wasnt the only social media abuzz with Jommla!ness. The wireless generation was also busy checking into Foursquare, uploading pics on photo sites or blogging about the Joomla! mojo.
(By the way, did you catch the number of peeps checked into Level 29 Tower 2 KLCC? Cool isnt it?)
All these Twitter feeds, blog updates, Foursquare check-ins, and pic uploads turned the Microsoft Auditorium on Level 29, KLCC the hub of wireless activity! The Embedded Wireless team was proud to have made all this possible with free 3G broadband Internet connectivity via our 3G Gryphon Wireless Router.
While the Embedded Wireless Labs team worked tirelessly in the background ensuring connectivity was up, the seven multi-coloured Gryphon 3G Wireless router units hummed their way at Level 29, KLCC connecting people to the Twitterverse.
For us at EWL, it was one successful day of powering the community, engaging social media and adding to the awesomeness of Joomla Day Malaysia 2011 + our Gryphon 3G Wireless Router!
