Introducing Twitter Data

My good friend and colleague, Jiri (Jirka) Kopsa, and I recently formulated a means of embedding semi-structured data in Twitter. We call it Twitter Data.

From the site, http://twitterdata.org/

Twitter Data is a simple, open, semi-structured data representation format for embedding machine-readable, yet human-friendly, data in Twitter messages. This data can then be transmitted, received, and interpreted in real time to enable powerful new kinds of applications to be built on the Twitter platform.

Here is an example Twitter Data message:

I love the #twitterdata proposal! $vote +1

We'd love to hear your feedback on our proposal. Catch us on http://twitterdata.org, or on Twitter: @toddfast, @jirikopsa. If you tweet about Twitter Data, please add the #twitterdata hashtag so we can track your comments.

This is good initiative. I see a lot of use to it even inside the data centers and in particular, in the cloud computing space. I haven't read through the specs completely. But will put together my thoughts on how this can be used in a data center or a cloud effectively to manage Hardware, Software or whatever understands English.

Thanks again for the initiative
