Break New Ground

Qik-ing from Oracle OpenWorld

Guest Author

Just got the download on a great new social media program for OpenWorld.

Starting on Sunday, Qik account holders can join an "OpenWorld" event and stream their Qik video directly to blogs.oracle.com/videoblog. (yes, there will be a human filter in place to minimize the shenanigans), as well as to a video wall within Moscone Center itself. Furthermore, an employee team - yours truly included - have been equipped with Samsung devices to scour the conference for "targets of opportunity."

For those unfamiliar with it, Qik is a product that allows you to stream live video from a supported mobile device and then share and tag it appropriately. It's cool!

So, if you already have a Qik account, look for the OpenWorld event on the Qik homepage, starting Sunday. If you don't, register for one at qik.com!

If you're interested in watching my personal stream during the show, bookmark this blog post because I am embedding it right here:

(of course this widget will be blank until Sunday)

    Thanks for the post, Justin! Anyone can sign up for Qik, and if they are going to be attending OOW, they can add themselves to this event page so that all of their videos will appear with those of the other attendees:
    I will be at Oracle OpenWorld every day at the Qik kiosk between the demo areas in the Inside Innovation Pavilion (Moscone West). This will be my first OOW, and I'm really looking forward to meeting everyone!
