NewsGator Consolidates Blog Posts at Democratic Convention

Aug 29, 2008

Denver-based NewsGator Technologies is aggregating new media feeds in content syndication widgets especially for the Democratic Convention, enabling any individual, media company, webmaster, or social network to freely grab and plug the widget into their own site. The "NewsGator Big Tent Widget" is a web-based window that captures, consolidates, and displays blog posts (RSS feeds). The widget will show the latest content first, with priority on hot topics and popular blogs. The widget is named for the Big Tent new media center built for the convention. The "Qik Convention Widget" is a similar content syndication app that consolidates and streams live video as mobile phone users capture it using Qik’s phone-to-web service.
