Web App Tells You If Robert Scoble Is In The Room


The best web app at SXSW Interactive this year was “Is Scoble In The Room?”, created by Tom Scott and Ewan Spence.

This is the ultimate killer app for SxSW Interactive, answering the question that all brown-nosing social media idiots constantly ask: is Tech Influencer Robert Scoble in this room right goddamn now?

It tracks Scoble’s location round-the-clock based on his online activity, then combines that with HTML5 geolocation to work out the likely distance from Scoble to Scoblefan.

Now, Social Media Consultants don’t even have to think! Not that they were thinking anyway.
