Here's how you go about creating a mapped board: When I logged in last night I was prompted to create one with this banner: (more…)
With over 250 bands, djs and artists and only 2 days, planning out my schedule for the 3rd annual FoCoMX was a bit difficult! This year FoCoMX teamed up with Sched.org to create the website and schedule. They make it really easy to plan your weekend! All you have to do is create a login and select the bands you want to see. You can even link Sched.org to your Twitter, Facebook and Foursquare accounts to track where your friends are going to be. You can see my schedule here: http://focomx2011.sched.org/SativaBella or below is a screen shot of my tentative plan, but please suggest any bands you think I ...
Check.in is an HTML5 site that allows you to check in on Brightkite, Gowalla and Foursquare at the same time, which seems like an awesome idea, except it is missing some of the features that make those other applications great.
